Hello Everyone,

L.A. Sketchcrawl group is going to visit our favorite sketching spot, Union Station!

The group can also head out to Olvera Street across the street for more sketching and/or lunch.

This is a quick sketch I did, with color added with watercolor later. I was fascinated by the big lamp and how the morning light was coming through the tall space with a high ceiling.
