Lurie Garden

Yesterday was a visit to the Lurie Garden in Millennium Park with the Sketch Group. This was our first chance to work outside this year and it was a lovely warm Chicago day. The garden looks lovely altho we missed the tulips at their peak. I did two watercolor sketches, one in the book and one on separate paper. It was great to be outside to work again!

Painting at Navy Pier

Monday wad Sketch Group and we
met at Navy Pier. Had hoped to be outside but it was chilly, windy and sometimes rainy at the lakefront, so we went up to the Crystal Garden. I tried to do a looser rendition of the trees than I did last time we went there. It was fun painting and visiting. Next time we are meeting at the Lurie Gardens. I love that location!
