Painting The Bean

Yesterday was the October outing for the sketch group and we met at Millennium Park. Altho only three of us braved the coolish and damp forecast. We were rewarded with a partly sunny, dry afternoon and we set up at one of the tables and tackled "The Bean". It was the first time I have tried painting it and getting the scale right is a challenge. I may still add a few details to this sketch and I started a second one that I will post later.

Painting at the Aquarium

Last Monday the Sketch Group's last outing for the month of September and we decided to take advantage of a free admission day at the Shedd Aquarium. We set up around the circular reef exhibit and after our eyes adjusted to somewhat dimmer lighting than we are used to, we all set to work. The constant movement of fish and people is a challenge but it was a most enjoyable afternoon. I would like to go back again, the view was always changing.
