Solar Furnace and Skeletal Bloom
Drawing from the day of January 27, 2011.
After heading up to the Haight area in the early afternoon with my friend Chacon, I found that the drawing I was intending to finish had been washed away. This would've been day 3 of the constructed Emperor face.
I decided to change locations, and moved to the Buena Vista park area, a sort of tree-filled hillock on one side of Haight. There was some sidewalk with nice texture, and it was an excellent day to enjoy the sun. A lot of passersby enjoyed the work.
Having no plans laid out, I just went ahead with a 'dragon tail' type flower design. I did something new with this one, and drew the base of the flower coming up out of a skull. I have never rendered a skull in chalk before, and this was a style I'd been pondering.
It was nice to get slices of pizza after a good day of drawing, slices of vegetarian with artichoke and sun dried tomato and one with potato and garlic.
