When I came across these Chanel Flats this week, I couldn’t help but want to paint them.  I love the classic shape to them and the fact that they’re adorned with tiny pearls.  I really enjoyed trying to nail the texture of the pearls in my painting–especially because texture is always such a challenge when it comes to watercolor.  #Slowlybutsurely.
