There's Something about a Pencil
At our regular Monday sketch group, in my quest to loosen up, I started out trying to use only my brush with no pencil marks to guide me. I dove right in painting one of my fellow sketchers. But when all was said and done I couldn't resist adding pencil at the end. It just needed that definition to punch it up a little. I left the other sketch as it was.
We were working at the Nature Boardwalk at the Lincoln Park Zoo. There were lots of tourists and kids enjoying the last days of freedom before school starts. I hope, when they stopped, chatted and commented, we inspired them to give sketching a try!
