Back from Chicago

My blog posts have been very sparse lately but now that Summer is winding down I'm in the Studio more. A couple of weeks ago my friend Angela and I went to Chicago, IL to take a week long drawing workshop from Henry Yan at the Palette and Chisel. His book is "Henry Yan's Figure Drawing Techniques and Tips". It was very inspirational to watch his demos and study his drawings which were so well done and beautiful. Of course I already knew that to draw well you must practice and practice then practice more.

Angela and I had to eat at Gino's and have their famous Chicago Style Pizza!
The view from our Hotel--if you look closely between buildings you can see our Lake Michigan view (lol).

Yes I am still painting, here's my latest 3 hour head study from Monday night.
