I never get over how many wonderful views this city offers. From the soaring architecture, the lakefront, to the green-garden escapes tucked in every corner. I grab my sketchbook (moleskin), pencils, and travel watercolor set whenever I can fit it in my bag. Here are a few recent sketches from around town.
|Looking North in Millennium Park from the great lawn infront of the stage. June 10th|
Summer nights in Chicago mean free concerts and movies in Millennium Park
. I staked out my patch of lawn early for the concert this past Monday night, and sketched out a quick look at the architecture behind the stage.
|View South from my 10th floor patio - May 26th|
Sometimes a quick sketch can be done at home - over a recent weekend I found time to sketch on my deck which offers great views of the varied south loop architecture.
|Lighthouse off Navy Pier - May 20th 2013|
This sketch was done on the end of Navy Pier on a bright sunny day spent on the lakefront. I tried to catch the ever-changing shades of the water and the puffy clouds as they sped by.
