Dirty and dusty dirt bike boots

I was tiding up one day and glanced at my husband’s dirt bike boots sitting in a corner near the door  As soon as I picked them up to put them in the close I just knew I had to paint those boots!

Watercolor painting of dirty dirty bike boots in progress.The dust patterns made for a wonderful contrast against the dark shiny black leather.  The soles were even more interesting with pebbles and sand.  I started to paint them parked upright but I really wanted to capture all the cool textures of the soles so I flipped one boot on its side and boom.  Perfect picture.
