It's fun to take the local light rail for a plein air paint-out at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. It's a beautiful landmark building, opened in 1939. There is a stunning main waiting room with tall windows reflecting light on the tile and marble floors. I'm adding an interior photo below. The 1930's style chairs are a main attraction.
I painted the building last July and posted about that experience in Union Station. That time I painted from Plaza Park across the street. On this Saturday we painted views around the building. There are enclosed garden courtyards or patios on both sides of the main waiting room. I chose a view to paint in the north side patio which was shady, uncrowded, and has a lovely tiled fountain. Such an exciting location and fun morning.
