Free concert in Forest Park, St. Louis

Hundreds attended the St. Louis Symphony's free concert in Forest Park on Tuesday evening as it kicked off its 135th season with a bang, literally. The setting was on Art Hill, a natural amphiteater that over looks the Grand Basin. The program was a mix of a few familiar classical pieces, a selection of movie themes and a John Phillips Sousa march played as the concert finale followed by a spectacular fireworks display. I made this sketch on an iPad under an umbrella to block the glare from distracting the people around me.

  1. Great drama in this one with the high contrast and limited palette. How did you use an umbrella without blocking others' view?

  2. Wow, you really caught the excitement. Night scenes are difficult!

  3. Great post! I love this little drawing and all the little people!
