These sketches were loose or in different sketchbooks from my last posts…
This first sketch was done in my morning pages as I was waiting for my flight for Chicago. I got up so early that I had to do my morning routine at the airport. There was another flight boarding at my gate. These folks were going to Punta Cana. I was sitiing at a table sipping my Starbucks latte and I could see the Punta Cana folks sitting on the runway so I sketched their plane…..and I wondered who was going to the Dominican Republic in the summer? It’s not hot enough here at home?
The next two sketches:
An ATC that I did on the final day of the symposium, and the sketch on the left is in my moleskine travelers notebook….this one was my plane at Kennedy. I stamped the page so it would look a little like a passport.
The ATC is one of two that I did Saturday afternoon….I traded the other one with another sketcher who was from Tel Aviv.
Here is a sketch I did of a flag in the business area of Chicago…
The two sketches below were done at O’Hare before I boarded my plane….
This morning, I sketched the top of the Congress Hotel. It’s a cool sign and it glows brightly when lit in the evening and I enjoyed the challenge of sketching it this morning.
Then I moved on to sketch Lake Michigan. I couldn’t leave Chicago without sketching the lake! I was surprised how green it looked, like the Carribbean. It was bustling with activity.
The Goodman Center has been our home away from home these past few days. I took a few minutes to sketch this before I ran off to join the rest of the artists at our final sketching spot.
I have a few more quick sketches that I did that I will post tomorrow. Overall, it was a great experience.’
The sketch subject below is on Congress Pkwy just East of Michigan Ave. This sculpture is beautiful. It is designed as a trellis for vines so that her skirt will fill out with plant life…so far, she just has a few leaves.
I moved on to the Plaza where the native American sculpture was holding court. My friends were focused on his “six pack” butt.
The Buckingham Fountain
The London House…..in Chicago……oookay. I had to rush through the end of this one because I had run out of time….
So here I am in Chicago, sketching with 575 other artists from 34 countries around the world.
I am sitting at Congress and Michigan Ave while I am typing this, before I start another sketch.
Here are a few photos of some of the sketches that I did. I am meeting people from all over the world and this is a totally awesome experience.
