This was the first time I came back to Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits since I went on a field trip in grade school. Walking around and sketching made me remember the awe and fascination I felt when I saw the fossils there. It is incredible that tar is still bubbling up from the ground and more fossils are still being dug up, right in the middle of the city!
Here are sketches of the fossils + banjo player outside and a hummingbird perched on a branch in the garden (all not to scale):
After lunch, some of us walked to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art). This is a watercolor sketch of people waiting in line by Urban Lights outdoor sculpture at LACMA - in reality, there were A LOT more people than pictured here. It was fun to chat with other sketchers and revisit my favorite sites!
