You can't live in Chicago without being enthralled with the buildings---architecture, lakefront. Everywhere you look, is something fascinating. Chicago is a city of lift bridges over the Chicago River, north and south branch. This is the east end of the river towards the lake, looking west.
The river is always some shade of green unless the sky is bright blue, then it is a bit more like navy/green.
The skyline is always changing from bricks, limestone, and now glass towers lining the river. To the middle right is the iconic Merchandise Mart with its green roofs and multi level rooftops. It's a beautiful building inside and out---and huge---miles of corridors and display rooms, offices, and exhibit spaces.

I liked this paper, and used it because I thought I could maintain straight lines on it, IF I could paint straight lines, lol.
Painted from a small part of a huge photo on Pinterest.
