Custom Shoe

While I have been ‘working’ I managed to spare 2 hours to paint a new pair of blank canvas shoes. I had painted 2 pairs about 2 years ago but they are in pieces (literally) now so I felt it was time to have some more custom shoes.
I was quite stuck with what to paint on the shoe and while looking for inspiration I thought of the Bauhinia of Hong Kong. Then realised that it is quite hard to draw a Bauhinia let alone paint it on a shoe, so I went with cherry blossoms, which also reminds me of Chinese new year. Went a bit japanese and put in the famous wave. Am not quite sure what to put on the rest of the shoe.
