A woman with good shoes is never ugly.

Shoes Shoes Shoes... as a newbie and self-learner in fashion illustration field, watercoloring shoes was great way to put my first step into.

Here is my first shoes, Giuseppe Zanotti. I'd like to try some other material to express the sparkling belt but for now I tried to accomplish everything with watercolor. The main body part of shoes was suede.

Here is my second shoes, Jimmy Choo. I loved the original color of the shoes but I think I couldn't achieve it very well with my watercolor.

And I also tried another item, Chanel lipstick.

I tried fashion portrait with watercolor and salt. You can see the effect on her hat but very vague. I didn't use watercolor paper for this one and that's the reason, I guess. The left page is my practice with "fan brush". Pardon my daughter's princess drawing on the top.
