At the Palette and Chisel Watercolor

This New Year's Day I spent the day drawing and painting figure  models from life at the Palette and Chisel in Chicago. It was a solid day of working in an old mansion converted into studio and gallery spaces in the Gold Coast section of Chicago. It was a great opportunity to work directly from the figure surrounded by other artists who were doing the same thing. I used a set of Schmincke watercolors. Lately I have been using a set of St. Petersburg watercolors. they are both good quality paints, but the colors are noticeably different, especially the blue hues.
