Angel of Color - soft pastels by DavidSerret Angel of Color - soft pastels by DavidSerret
-ENG-
From nov. 9th to 11th I participated in an art contest in my town, and I chose Angel of Colors by `Artgerm because I'm in love with this piece.

The contest is called "El Arte por los suelos" (The art on the grounds mor or less, a spanish word game) organized by the Guadalajara's city government. This was the 3rd edition and my first time. The space asigned to each artist was 2x2mts on the Hospicio Cabañas' esplanade, downtown in GDL.

I didn't win any of the first places but it was a huge challenge to myself, since I haven't used pastels in a long, long time and this was my first time doing it on the ground so I didn't have idea of many details. I learned a lot on the go and from all the other artists, who did a really AWESOME work on their pieces. You should check them out, they're on the Contest's facebook here: [link] or at their website: www.coloresdejalisco.com

Done with soft pastels on quarry floor, size 2x2mt (a square of 6.5 feet each side), done in 20 hours within 3 days which was the time the contest marked.

An apology if you see some mismatches on the photo, it is a composition of various pictures I took and put together digitally.

Of course proper credit was given to the original artist.

Del 9 al 11 de noviembre participé en un concurso realizado en Guadalajara llamado "El arte por los suelos" organizado por Colores de Jalisco, un programa del gobierno de la ciudad. Elegí Angel of Colors de `Artgerm porque estoy enamorado de esta pieza desde que la vi.

Esta fue la 3a edición (anual) del concurso y este año fue mi primera participación; consiste en dibujar una obra en el piso usando sólo gises pastel (pastel seco) cada artista en un área de 2x2 mts, se llevó a cabo en la explanada del Hospicio Cabañas, un sitio histórico en el centro de la ciudad.

A pesar de que no gané uno de los primeros lugares, me encantó poder participar, tuve suerte en ser seleccionado, me divertí, me quemé con el sol (ya que si tú no llevas tu sombra, no hay ninguna otra), aprendí mucho y vencí un reto personal ya que hacía años que no usaba esta técnica y era mi primera vez usándola en el piso. Hay muchas mañas y detalles qué aprender en esto de la gente que participó y que hicieron trabajos GRANDIOSOS. Pueden revisar las obras de los participantes y ganadores en el Facebook del concurso aquí: [link] o en la pagina oficial de Colores de Jalisco: www.coloresdejalisco.com

Sobre la obra: Técnica pastel seco sobre loza de cantera, medidas: 2x2mts, hecho en 20 horas distribuidas en 3 días, que fue el tiempo asignado a todos los concursantes para terminarlo.

Una disculpa si notan incongruencias en la imagen, ya que la armé a partir de varias fotos que tomé y junté en PS.

Desde luego el autor fue acreditado por la pieza original.

Sí a mi me impresiona ver los resultados que se pueden obtener, adicionalmente viendo que puede ser en casi cualquier superficie como este caso que fue piso de cantera. Tengo muucho qué mejorar pero creo que fue un buen comienzo =D
gracias!

Hello

It's not a rip off because credit was given to the original artist before, during and after making of this piece. It is even credited in the comments section. Also no commercial use at all was made either.

Greetings!

I love how as soon as something has rainbow-coloring it suddenly has something to do with Rainbow Dash in certain peoples eyes =_=

I love this picture a lot btw, the colors and the different shades of colors amaze me (:

Yeah it's a phenomenon that is currently in people's mind, maybe in a couple of years this effect will pass. It's the effects of fashions I believe.

Im glad you liked it, I enjoyed a lot using so many colors in one single work =)
