I headed north from the meeting point, starting out by wandering through Woodlawn Park. I sat down on the bridge and did a quick (of necessity) sketch of a mother and child on the slides. They were gone before I'd finished, so half of the sketch was done from memory.
On to Woodlawn school, where I did a giant pottery urn, collecting rain-water for the adjoining gardens.
I'd been hearing trains to the north, so I headed to the edge of the school grounds to take a peek down the hill. And saw looming over the industrial buildings on the flats, the OHS. I hadn't realized that you could get to it from here.
Well, you can sort of get to it. I headed down the hill and got across Lombard at a light. But I'm way too old to try sprinting across Columbia. So I leaned against a fence on the corner and sketched, first a massive old cherry tree on the grounds, and then the building itself.
