Welcome to 2013 - a new year and a new challenge ...

January inspiration comes to you from ...  My Blue Angel by 3D chalk artist - Jenny McCracken.

 
Criteria – the use of chalk or the addition of wings on your entry
 or be adventurous and use both :)
 
A little about 3D chalk art
 
3D chalk art is also known as pavement art, street painting, anamorphic perspective, optical illusions and sidewalk art.
 
3D chalk art is traditionally produced directly on the ground. Images and footage of the artwork continue to spread a message online well after the work has been washed away. Traditionally it is a temporary art form but these days permanent artworks are produced on the ground and walls too.
 
No question - Chalk art is a crowd-stopper – a great choice for a centrepiece at all kinds of festivals! 3D chalk art can be supported with public are workshops and competitions.
 
3D illusions can be produced directly on the ground, on canvas, or other surfaces. When canvas is used the artworks can be used for multiple events. Posing in 3D artworks for photos is engaging way to interact with an audience and to reach a larger audience.
