Chicago River

Last week we started Plaine Aire Sunday, and this Sunday we were in Lake Geneva. I attempted a street scene painting from Starbucks, but it just fell flat. The same day, I bought an excellent book on George Bellows and after copying one of his paintings, I did this from a photo of the Chicago river.George Bellows was not afraid of using black, and he has a point.
