The Eye of a Pirate Chalk Art

This was done for the  Gasparilla Arts Festival in Downtown Tampa Bay FL

 Amazing weekend at Gasparilla Arts Festival in Tampa FL. Great people, great food, and Awesome art! Got most of the bird and skull done on day one and the background done by 1pm on day 2.  Really had a fun time with this one.  The final artwork was donated to the event who will auction it off for a non profit children for the arts charity. I have more photos of the event on my facebook page! Be sure to like for awesome artz! 

Just a fantastic event! Would do again in a heartbeat!

Final size: 8ft x 8ft
About 14 hours
Done on on concrete backer board

Materials: Koss Soft Pastels, Mountain Vision Soft pastels and Eternity Chalks

Your piece came out great. Shadowing awesome. Wow on the red - haven't seen that intensity in any other brand of chalk. The event itself was quite good, lots of high quality work, wouldn't we be such awesome collectors if we had the dough? See ya in Tampa.  ~ D.

Donation!  That's a really cool event.  And I really like pastel.  I haven't done it since high school, but this makes me want to try it out again.

It's so colorful...the beautiful bird of the pirate! Very nice donation! I spent a few months in Tampa back in the late 70s, and I do remember the Gasparilla Arts Festival...I guess it's been going on for some time now :-)
