38th International Sketchcrawl, KCMO


We had a wonderful time and a good turnout for our Union Station many interested watchers, as well, who shared their own stories of this magnificent old building.  It stood empty for years--I'm so grateful it was saved and is full of life and beauty again.

Imagine designing this place...I started out setting up my sketch stool so I could sit comfortably wherever I wanted, and craned my neck looking up at the chandeliers...

You don't see this kind of detail any more...
It was a warm January day, so I sat outside on a bench and sketched the Liberty Memorial, across the was backlit and in deep shadow so the forms were very simplified.  Made me try a David Gentleman approach!

We always share food and journals and good talk afterward...Harvey's restaurant, in the station, had paper table covers, so of course I sketched as many of us as I could!
Here's the crew...less two of us.
Don's gorgeous sketch, which I hope he will scan and share...
I didn't manage to shoot Jeanette's sketch from the day, but her journal is an absolute joy...I get lost in it!

Malinda sketched Harvey's from the balcony!  Next time I think I need to branch out, what a great view!
I hope your day was as satisfying as ours was!
