When my daughter was growing up, she was in love with red shoes. Especially red tennies. I've painted one of her pairs of red tennies several times, and I never get tired of them. I still have one of her pairs, too - a pair of baby PF Fliers. Red tennies give you an opportunity to use a fabulous color - Cadmium Red. I prefer the Grumbacher Cadmium Red Deep.

Here's another of the coffee cup studies that I did. This one reminded me how much I like certain blues and browns together. They must be soft and muted, but the right tones are very complimentary. I used permanent ink in this one. It's alot of fun to use ink sometimes. I sometimes feel like that's not a "pure" watercolor...but it's fun anyway. I use Pigma Micron pens. They are super - don't have to refill them, never get clogged, excellent quality and cost.
