Lincoln Park Zoo

Monday was the first June gathering of the Sketch Group and we headed
for the new Nature Boardwalk at the Lincoln Park Zoo. We found some
shade under a bridge and the view in both directions was great. I
chose the southern view of the pond, park and skyline. The northern
view was pond, park and the Cafe Brauer. It was a beautiful day to be
outside painting. The new boardwalk is going to be even better as the
plantings mature and grow. I could probably go to the zoo everday for
a month and find something interesting to paint each time!

Subway On Washington

I did the pencil sketch last week and finally had some time today to
add some color. The Sketch Group met last Monday at the Chicago
Cultural Center for our outing. We spent most of the time looking at
the Romare Bearden exhibit upstairs which was large and fascinating.
So I only had time to do a couple of quick pencils drawings from the
stairs on the Washington side of the building before time to head home.
