For many years one of the classic shoe styles for little boys has been the traditional lace up saddle oxfords! They are made to last and have stories to tell about their precious owners! This pencil study was done from a still life set up in my art studio. I love the water soluble graphite pencils to give me the light, medium, and dark values for the final painting! Here, I have laid the groundwork for the small oil painting on canvas which shall be titled, "Classic"! Be sure to check back to see the completed work!
