Composition Exercise

We were assigned the task of creating an interesting shoe composition using 18×24″ drawing paper and woodless pencils.

My first attempt was in class, I was satisfied with the shading but after our lesson on movement, I felt like the composition was static, the eyes don’t wander around the drawing.

So I had a second go at it. I liked the triangle my composition created but I had misjudged how much room would be left at the bottom of the composition and how close the stiletto was to the top.

It kept bothering me until I finally did it again- third time’s the charm, right? Well, in this case it was! I was able to combine my lesson on movement and composition to feel a significant improvement with the final product.

Can’t wait to see everyone else’s in class tomorrow.
