Chicago: The Monday sketch group went to the Lincoln Park Conservatory yesterday. When we planned it we figured if it was gray and cold we could go inside and paint the spring flower show. Yay! The sun was out and it was 60°! I probably spent more time looking at the sky and smiling than sketching!
This is done in a Stillman & Birn sketchbook. The Beta series is a favorite of mine. It handles the watercolor well and I love the way the pencil feels on it.
