urban hike


Went on a hike in the city today. Three hours, beginning in Oakland by Schenley High School, then walking up through the Upper Hill / Sugar Top neighborhood, and then down through Polish Hill and back into Oakland again. It was a little less than five miles, but very hilly, and hot and muggy. I wasn't able to pause to draw - I think I may need to organize a sketch crawl for that - but I did take pictures. This was painted at home from one of them - a hazy view of Garfield Heights and East Liberty from Herron Hill, one of the highest points in the city of Pittsburgh.

I really like the looseness of this one...Your clouds look very lively!
