Chicago Skyline #742 is by skyline artist Stephen F. Condren, BFA, SAIC. The view is taken from Lincoln Park across the pond from the Lincoln Park Zoo. The line work here is clean and clear. I have made it my goal to grasp the images of the skyline in terms of pure for and not attempting to replicate the buildings.
The buildings form a bar code of the city and that is how I want to express this imagery. Together with the landscape and pond the image is strong and tells you everything that you want to know about the scene without demanding to see every detail.
This is a pen & ink drawing of the Chicago Loop at night time. The main focus of this pen & ink drawing is to capture the feeling of the city at night. This is done by permitting the glow of the light from the streets to show. The night time sky is effectively captured by the cross-hatching lines of ink.
