The Chazen Museum

We had a few more sketchers join us as the Chazen on Sunday. It was great sketching with you all. I enjoyed sketching on the Bridge, and people explore a number of other galleries. Chamber music from the "Sunday Afternoon Live at the Chazen" concert series combined with good company and a beautiful setting made for a fairly magical Sunday afternoon.

This is my drawing of the view from the Bridge down East Campus Mall to Lake Mendota.  I forgot to write down the name of the artist who made the glass sculpture in the foreground. I drew it with graphite and added color in Photoshop later on -- I think the color really helps distinguish the foreground and background. I've also posted the drawing before I added the color.

Do people think it's okay to post drawing's modified with Photoshop? I like this aesthetic, but is it cheating?


  1. Very Nice, Dana! No, it's not cheating if you say it's photoshopped, esp when the Chazen only allows the use of graphite. It was great to see so many new faces and hope to see more in the coming weeks.

  2. This turned out so well, Dana!
    The color added is interesting. Hey, Photoshop is a sketching tool, too! LOL!
