Portrait and Compass
As part of a yearly celebration, Berkeley hosts an event centered on chocolate and sidewalk chalk drawings.(Chalk and Chocolate Festival) It is a small contest and anyone can enter. The spaces around Shattuck Avenue become the site of the artworks.
An excellent day of summer weather. Took Bart to downtown Berkeley and drew a nice mural with Estella. Several hours produced a decent rendering of a woman's face with bluish purple hair, an ornate frame and a geometric star.
It was a lovely day to be walking around taking photos. The vines growing around a community garden, a large building being demolished, and a painted payphone all made interesting images.
