A Room with a View

 Last Monday our local sketch group  met at the Chicago Cultural Center. We had a brief discussion about upcoming venues and then headed off in different directions to sketch. It was one of those Chicago days that was lovely one minute, iffy the next and then back to lovely. I chose to stay inside and sketch just in case. 

This was done from a second floor  (maybe it was the third floor) window. Looking east, toward the lake, the Pritzker Pavilion looks like it's in full sail. I sketched at the window and then added color when we regrouped in the CCC lobby.

The first two images are from my iPhone. The third one is scanned and seamed in Photoshop.

(Edit Note: It was called to my attention that the first image had a big yellow dot in the center. I've uploaded it again. Thanks Jen!)


  1. Barbara, I LOVE fresh and immediate!

  2. Thanks Kate. I'm working hard to be more in the moment while sketching.

  3. That's one of the things I most love about sketching from daily life, wherever we are.
