I have spent much of the last two weeks working on these small images. Each of the artists in the about to end 2012 HATCH Project at the CAC are creating an edition of small 2D or 3D pieces. In December we will meet as a group for the last official time for a potluck dinner and to exchange work with one another. We are to create an edition of 20, all of which are to fit inside a cardboard box we have been given. There will be a few extras in each edition which will go to the CAC for a future fundraising event. These are 4 of the 20 small abstracts I have been working on. I have enjoyed working on these smaller pieces and think I may do some more!
This was our third visit to sketch at Navy Pier and we were determined to work outside this time. Our first two visits the weather forced us inside. So despite a very brisk southerly wind and temps in the low 60's, we found some tables and chairs in the sun, zipped up jackets and pulled up hoods and set to work. I decided to look back at the city and get some of the skyline with the pier. It had to be quick, the chill eventually got to us but our mission was accomplished!
Last Monday was our day to go sketching. We met in front on Nookie's restaurant on Wells St. and then spread out from there to find our subject matter. This is the second sketch from that day, I did the pencil drawing on location and then finished it at home with some ink and color. Someone or something must have hit the back lamp post and left it askew. Only a few more outings left before we take a break for the weather and the Holidays.
