Last Monday was a foggy afternoon along the Chicago lakefront but we found a safe place to paint away the day at the lily pool north of the Lincoln Park Zoo. Always a favorite spot for sketching, the pool is different with every visit. Not as many lily pads this visit but many promising lilies waiting to bloom. A visit back in a few week might find more flowers. This is the first watercolor sketch I did. A second one needs a bit of finishing so will post later.
