Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

Knoxville’s Dogwood Arts Festival Chalk Walk frequently receives entries showing something afloat.  If nothing else, those of us with little artistic talent feel as if we’re floating as we walk between the chalk drawings simply amazed that anyone can stay hunched over for a day creating art that we could only dream of doing. Here’s a peek.

Seemingly afloat is this diver who’s taking a closer look at sea vegetation.

Another entry seemed afloat just by the process of creation:  the artists (University of Tennessee students) were freehanding the painting!  No paper picture beside them.  No preconceived notion of how this should turn out.  Just one artist sketching freehandedly (Is that a word?) while the other one filled in the color.

End result?  A dreamy, purple-haired lady afloat with the creatures beside her.

  4. Artists always impress me but the ones who can create pieces of art with chalk are amazing. What talent it takes to create one of these beautiful pieces of work.
