Union Station Reflections

I've painted Union Station several times over the years, but I have never stood in this location with that beautiful fountain in the foreground. I LOVE this view!  That warm golden hour light is gorgeous and fleeting, and one must be ready for speed painting to capture that light!  I drop the lines with my favorite TWSBI fountain pen and Levenger Raven Black ink, coaxing those grays with a wet brush.  The energy of the city is in the very air, and slips right into my work with every stroke.  I'm so lucky to get to do this every day.  Painting number 1931 in 1931 days.
