Chicago Skyline Pen & Ink Drawing At Night #744A

This Chicago skyline #744A pen & ink drawing at night is by skyline artist Stephen F. Condren, BFA-SAIC. This pen & ink drawing is done of the near north side of Chicago at night. Working with night time drawings is always a challenge and as always, I always learn more when my pen touches the paper. Every stroke of ink opens up know possibilities as I draw and I so want to capture as many as I can!

Since the son is setting in the west and thus glowing behind the John Hancock Center I had to focus my attention and making the light radiate effectively. Also, the skyscrapers are dark and I knew that to darken them would ruin the drawing so I left them along so as to reflect the light. The water of Lake Michigan as well is luminous and not as dark as the heavens so I kept it light. However, I did darken the trees along the shore to support the structures above.

Key features:

  • Light
  • Delineation
  • Water
