Urban Sketching Seminar in Chicago

Vanessa Sorensen, Nora Young, Carla Franke, Carol Schwartz and I all met in Chicago for the sketch group's inaugural Urban Sketching Seminar.  (Here is their write up on their blog about the event.)

We were not the only travelers. There were other attendees from further away including Ontario!

Many who read this blog will remember that Carol moved away from Cincinnati to Milwaulkee a while ago and we all miss her at our weekly lunches!

It was a great weekend to get out in draw and photograph (check out Vanessa's awesome photography from the trip.)

Here are some of my, Carol and Vanessa's sketches:

Saturday morning, we went on a little church architectural sketch tour. This is Vanessa and my sketches from the Holy Name Cathedral. Roger Ebert's funeral was here (not while we were drawing).

There will be more sketches to post and as I get them and links, I will post them.
