I decided to practice my chalk art skills at Halloween at the end of Oct. 2016. I did my next chalk art in my driveway for Trick-or Treat. Everyone loved it and parents took lots of picture of their kids in their costumes with it. It was a quick one. I did it in 2 hours, but it look good. It stayed on my driveway for through the end of the year!
Looked pretty good!
Neighbor kids in their costumes with my artwork!
A pumpkin with my pumpkin!
My pumpkin stayed in my driveway through the end of the year!
Chalk the Block at Easton
My second chalk art was at Chalk the Block at Easton in Columbus, Ohio Sept. 2016
When I finished my first chalk art I was exhausted, but fired up to do another one. When I got home I looked online for other chalk art competitions and discovered that their was one in Easton the very next weekend! I emailed them and got right in! This one went so much easier than the first!
It all begins with a sketch on my art desk at home....
Then a sketch on the pavement.
Finished in 3 hours!
I was so proud of this. It worked out well!
Ginny's Chalk Art
Last year, in 2016, I started a new type of art: Chalk Art
I'm quickly discovering what an interesting type of art it is. It is demanding but rewarding. I did three chalk art works last year and I'm hoping to do more this year and in the future.
My very first Chalk Art at Rock the Ville in Westerville Ohio in Sept. 2016
Step #1: the sketch
Step #2: the beginning
It rained off and on that day. We would take a break and cover out artwork up and then go back to it after the rain had stopped.
It came out pretty good and matched the sketch pretty well!
Soon after the rain was there to stay.
It rained all evening and my artwork just melted away!
