The Bean...Chicago Painting

'The Bean' 5x7 pastel
I have been wanting to paint the Bean (Cloud Gate) for awhile now. Actually ever since I first saw it a couple of years ago in Chicago's Millenium Park but I haven't had the nerve! It is this week's subject for Karin Jurick's blog so it was the perfect time to try it! Karin suggested just letting the shapes guide you and not think about what you were painting. That really helped!
Here is a little info about Cloud Gate.....
Cloud Gate is British artist Anish Kapoor's first public outdoor work installed in the United States. The 110-ton elliptical sculpture is forged of a seamless series of highly polished stainless steel plates, which reflect the city's famous skyline and the clouds above. A 12-foot-high arch provides a "gate" to the concave chamber beneath the sculpture, inviting visitors to touch its mirror-like surface and see their image reflected back from a variety of perspectives.
