Last Saturday's sketchcrawl began a little drizzly, but I didn't want to miss a chance to sketch the outside of Union Station. I drove around in a perplexing circle of one way streets, until I found a perfect parking space. This view was periodically blocked by buses, but over two and a half hours, all of it was revealed in bits. I was delighted to be able to see Union Station's towers, the Fremont and Broadway bridges and two construction cranes all from my lucky spot. By the time my drawing was done, it was pouring rain and my windows were all fogged up. I finished up with watercolors at home.


  1. Terrific panorama! Urban sketching from the car is ideal in the winter -- I call my car my mobile studio. ;-)
