Sketching and Bicycling in Los Angeles

In the previous post, we visited family in San Clemente. We biked down to the Metrolink station and caught a train up to Union Station in Los Angeles. We got on the Purple Line all the way as far as it goes to Wilshire and Western. We got on our Bromptons and peddled down 4th Street to our motel. Los Angeles is a great place to ride a bike as long as you stay off the busy streets.

We were only a short bike ride from my Mom's apartment, the Los Angeles County Museum and the La Brea Tar Pits. I did a sketch of a bubbling, oozing pit with pen and colored pencils in my small, Strathmore toned paper journal:

 Another fun place to sketch in Los Angeles is the Farmers Market. Roberta did a fun sketch i watercolor in her Strathmore Hardbound 500 Series Mixed Media Art Journal:

Another fun place to sketch is in front of Trader Joe's.
We wished we could spend more time in Los Angeles sketching and biking, but we had to leave. Here is a sketch I did of the beautiful palm trees in the Park La Brea community in my big journal:
