This weekend saw the Chalk Art Festival in Larimer Street. I joined the Front Range Photography Meetup group. for this event. Arriving early, I took the opportunity of wandering around to appreciate the art work. There was a light overcast in the morning, so there was a pleasant spring morning. One artist had his work under a tent — here is “Betty” by Rolf Armstrong.
The detail in this image is just amazing. There were many works of art being worked on. The size of each work usually requires a team of artists to complete the artwork. This drawing looked like a fun piece of art.
There was a wide variety of different drawings being worked. Some were bright and colorful, other pieces were more subdued. I chose to include the artist in most of the photographs that I made at the festival.
Here we see a lady working on a drawing of a baby in an interesting pose. Many of the works were made with pastels and chalks as the media for the drawings.
Here we have two art works that are mainly white and pale shades of gray. The drawing in the foreground looks almost complete. The two artists have much more work to complete the adjacent drawing.
During the course of the morning, the light overcast disappeared and the temperature rose into the 80′s. Here is one artist taking a break from the sun!
I was particularly struck with the level of detail and tonal values in the following image. The light and shade in the following image is just incredible.
One of the first images that I saw in the morning was the following image of a fox, rendered in blues and whites.
By this time, the weather became more toasty. So this was one of the final images that I made before heading back home on light rail.
