But, it still wasn’t complete. I felt I needed to add depth, and soften the red shadows on the legs…

Here’s the finished painting:

It’s hard to tell by looking at this photo, but the silver spray paint I used created a metallic shine on certain parts of the painting, including near the Nike check on the red shoe, and near the toe of the blue shoe.

I tried to capture the shine in this photo, by tilting the painting to catch the sunlight:

It’s hard to see it in the photos, but it’s brilliant in person. Almost like mirrors.

I colored the edges of the canvas in the same style as the painting:

 

I created my own shipping box for this one, using a box I had on hand. I filled it with packing pillows and crushed paper. I used loads of tape for extra reinforcement. Naturally, my hands are tired from the cutting.
