"Fungal Forest" by Troy's Work Table.Chalk painting for Wednesday 25 January 2017.

Sidewalk chalk wash, sidewalk chalk, chalk pastels, charcoal on concrete board.


I've been working on a new technique. It is more chalk painting than chalk drawing.


Lines of color were drawn on the concrete board in chalk and then wet down and "painted" with a small scrub brush. More lines of color, followed by more painting. A few images were drawn on the board. More color and more painting. Chalk pastels outlines of trunks. More painting. Then final lines of chalk pastel.


I'm really enjoying experimenting with this style of chalk painting and figuring out what type of effects I can create.
