So, I heard about the free “Winter Weekdays” at the Art Institute of Chicago a bit late, but once I had, I went during my lunch break everyday!  Here are 5 lunch breaks worth of sketches of my favorite sculpture:

Lunch Break Sketch – Day 1
Lunch Break Sketch – Day 2
Lunch Break Sketch – Day 3
Lunch Break Sketch – Days 4 & 5

I love drawing this sculpture–she is so peaceful-looking.  Is my mind playing tricks on me, or did each sketch get a wee bit better with each attempt?  It did become easier to sketch out more of her body at a quicker pace; with the first sketch, I immediately wanted to draw her face, but the next day I realized that was silly because I need to work on figure drawing more than anything else!
