Montrose Pier Plein Air



This is a little plein air I did yesterday afternoon, about an hour's worth. The location is maybe a mile or so away from my house, facing south looking towards downtown Chicago.

The atmoshpere is right on... I've seen this same view many times... from about Lincoln Park after a stroll in the zoo (free). Yes an hour well spent... the evidence is in.
