This week, I was in Chicago and got the chance to visit Palette & Chisel .
These sketches were drawn from life, at P& C's open studio, May 14.
P&C conducts an outstanding open studio, with natural north light and superb ventilation. I was traveling and brought only small sketchbooks and a few pens and pan pastels. But the studio is well designed for oils.
Sketch is on watercolor paper, about 5"x8"
Sleeping in Gold and Purple is pan pastels, ink, Tombow marker, brush and water.

I haven't seen any fawns yet, this season. But here's a snapshot of last year's model.
