Acrylic on 8×10 canvas.
This little guy is actually the wellspring of the entire theme. Unfortunately, I hadn’t photographed him properly initially and thought it better to post him later when the image was in proper focus. Imitating a chalkboard is a new challenge for me. Since chalkboards are generally smooth, I couldn’t use a textured medium so I wound up stippling to simulate the effect of chalk on the board. The erasure makes were created by applying layers of different tones of green.
