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!
