San Diego History Center

This is the building that houses the San Diego History Museum, the Railroad Museum and Photography Museum. I met with 3 sketch buddies today to sketch in this area of Balboa Park. I started on a 4 x 6 inch Arches watercolor board with pen and ink then painted it with watercolor.

This huge book in the history museum is the Guest Register from the 1915 Exposition. A beautiful book that was almost destroyed for scrap paper.
