This week’s art is a digital painting that depicts the Chicago riverfront, with the Marina Towers in the background, and a glorious twilight palette of colors.  This painting was done from scratch, but the colors were sampled from several photos I took from our hotel room when we were in the Windy City last month. I think it worked out pretty well considering how little time I put into it.  I’ll probably revisit this technique in the future.
