Concentration Piece - "Burst"
This piece is of four athletes, specializing in Track and Field. On the far left is Elisa Rehak - High Jump. Left center is Megan Battaglia - Hurdles. Center right is Kayla Stoots - Long Distance. To the far right is Jake Wade - Discus. This piece is different than my usual pieces, and I love it. It's the contrast of shadows and "bursts of color" that make the piece. I used chalk pastel to blend the colors and really make a statement. Track is all about little bursts of energy and having a "fire within". This piece describes it perfectly because it shows the energy within you coming out to win the race.
