Shop 'n' Sketch

Hooray! The Green City Market is open outdoors. The Market is open all year but in the warmer weather it's open outside in Lincoln Park. On Saturday mornings my husband shops and I sketch - a perfect arrangement.

I wish I had been bolder in my color choices, especially in the shadows, in this sketch. That's something I intend to work on as the season progresses.


  1. Wonderful sketch! I like the soft feel to it.

  2. I like it. You don't need bold colors - the soft, contemplative, comfortable sense of place would be lost. I also like sketching when my wife shops! Shopping is a waste of my good time. :)

  3. It is wonderful just the same! You did a great job getting the guy's posture!

  4. Always a delight to see your drawings! It's the dissatisfaction with each piece that propels us forward. Meanwhile...
