Surrealism in Chicago

There is something very surreal about sitting at the beach under a palm tree gazing up at the Hancock Center in Chicago!
We were a smaller group than usual today but I got a lot done. When working in such an open area I struggle with visual editing. This week I managed to work faster, simplify and focus better. Next week I'll try for a little bigger and freer.

It wasn't until I started to scan these sketches that I realized I didn't draw the palm trees and the skyline. That was really the most iconic view. Well that's a quest for another day.

  1. These are terrific! I love the 'quietness' of them, if that makes ANY sense.
