Displays at Beaty Biodiversity Museum, UBC

Fun museum at UBC with tons of displays to sketch! I ehm....only had time to get through 2 aisles, out of more than 30

Borrowed the crayons (in the kids activities section) to colour~

Scenes from Seattle: Space Needle, Fremont Troll, Pike Place Market, I-5 North

Space needle with the holiday lights on top. Fremont troll under the bridge, somebody decided to paint one of its eyes bright red (which is quite...eye-catching in the grey and rainy Seattle weekend ;A;)

Afternoon sun at Pike Place Market (more like afternoon-cloud-with-5-mins-of-weak-sun) w/ I-5 north by its side

Boathouse, Aquatic Park, Berkeley

Finally got around to sketch the colourful boathouse! I swore I'd come back with colours when I first started out with sketching in ink (black and white). First time attempting reflections in water too! And as I was looking at the water, I realized that I forgot to bring my water jar...(as always happens when I try to pack for more than one thing) So I had to make do with my spray bottle...because I wouldn't forgive myself if I bike home with a black and white boat house lol!

Marin Circle Fountain, Berkeley

Lived my fifth year at Berkeley yet haven't seen this landmark up close before. (Since it is in a purely residential area) The vague shapes on the fountain are bears standing side by side (with holiday red ribbons around their neck) To bad the sun shone through for only about 3 one-minute sessions...which means my fingers and knees were freezing after this 1+ hr session ;A;
Thankfully a handful of kind passer-bys offered their compliment :D

Hawk Hill overlook, Marin Headland, SF

Second time on Hawk Hill and first time seeing the bridge not covered by fog! The lights on the bridge and from the cars started to show through as dusk set in. The Bay bridge is also visible in the distance on the left...and I crammed the hills on the right together just to fit in the TV tower haha
