Berkeley Mini Crawl

In February Lisa and I did a mini-sketchcrawl around Berkeley and I never posted those sketches. Well, here they are!

The first sketch is the view across Shattuck Avenue here in North Berkeley from Bar Cesar where we had lunch. Although you wouldn’t know it, this is very close to the same view I sketched last month at twilight: same two trees there on the median strip.

After a quick North Berkeley tour we headed over to the UC Berkeley campus where we sketched the base of the Campanile Tower. I love the London Plane Trees on that plaza. They are wonderfully sculptural and go though dramatic changes throughout the year.

    Hi Matt:

    Thank you! For my sketches, it usually takes about 15 minutes to ink, on site, then another 20 or so to paint, either on site or later at home.

    For more information on my process, see this: sketching demo post.

    Could you give me some idea of how long it takes you to do these beautiful sketches? They are truly wonderful “eye candy”.

What are your thoughts?
