Veterans' Museum and Memorial Center
This is my sketch of the Veterans' Museum and Memorial Center done, while on a Meetup with the San Diego Urban Sketchers.
The building, the former chapel of the old Naval Hospital, was built during World War II. It is a beautiful neo-classical Spanish Colonial/California Mission design with thick walls and a red tile roof, a style that first took hold in San Diego during the Panama-California Exposition of 1915-16.
