This piece is guache on water color paper. I was really happy with the textures I was able to get out of the guache. (I treated myself to a paint set and have been playing with it)
This was during the time period I was trying to really work on my digital painting skills. I am proud of the progress I made in this one.

We studied various chalk artists and looked at the New Haven Chalk Festival. We played around with opitical illusions, interactive chalk art and all the different chalk techniques.
