I've got quite a few paintings to post and am jumping out of order to add this gouache piece from Saturday. We had fun painting in downtown Los Angeles at Union Station and I like the way this turned out. The last time I painted there was over a year ago and posted that watercolor in Union Station Courtyard.
Union Station opened in 1939 and has such an exciting vintage feel, like stepping back in time. The north courtyard where I painted last time drew me in again. It's cool, shady, and features a fabulous California tile fountain. I decided to take on the fountain because a couple women sat there to have lunch and feed the small birds. Of course they left by the time I wanted to add them to my painting. I'm so happy for digital cameras! Two tour groups came through while I was painting and I was listening for the name of the California pottery that did the tiles, but no info on that. They did say the north courtyard was meant to be a place for travelers to relax. Looking forward to next time as always!
