Today, the Urban Sketchers gathered at Union Station to record the festivities of National Train Day.
I started with a quick sketch of a fellow sketcher.
Next, I tried to capture the crowd waiting in line for a close up look at an old steam engine. There were people of all ages, lots of little kids, train buffs, and several clowns.

I went back for another quick sketch of this engine and added the gel pen and marker at home.
As always, it was fun and inspiring to sketch with the Urban Sketchers of Portland.
