Photos taken 6-29-15. As I had expected, the super-smooth surface of the sidewalk in this location, though bright and clean, didn't have the grit to allow the chalk material to really stay in place. After a few days this faded effect occurs.
Dolores Park in the Mission District, San Francisco, California. The park has been in the process of refurbishment for a good while now. The northern half has a reconstructed field and will be re-opening soon. The upper central area of the park, the top of the steps next to the bridge, has been an excellent drawing location numerous times in the past. I have been eagerly waiting for the chance to draw there again on brand new concrete once the area re-opens.
6-4-15. My lovely friend Camila accompanied me for the evenings pleasantries. She is an amazing sculptor from Argentina and we were discussing some kind of artistic collaboration on a Thursday poetry night. A minimal design before heading over to the sketch group.
