Still-life of a Shoe and a Dino

Oil paint on paper (26×19″)

This was the first full-color palette oil painting I have ever done in my art education. Oil paint was super intimidating to me considering it takes so long to dry and is a bit harder to control than acrylic paint. I chose to do a still life using contrasting colors and a tight composition so that the viewer’s eye is drawn to the red shoe in the middle.
