To Market, To Market
These to sketches are about the Green City Market in Lincoln Park, Chicago. The first one was done last week while I was there. The second one was done at home, today, with a "find" from the market.
The "find" is garlic scapes. Never heard of them? Me either. They just looked so interesting,I bought some to draw. I asked the farmer what they were and what do you do with them, besides draw that is(hum-I hadn't thought of drawing WITH them maybe tomorrow.) He said to use them like a mild garlic, chop them in salad or put them on the grill. Great to draw and even better to eat!
