Spring at UC Berkeley (contd.): Haviland Rd in the Engineering Quarter

I pass by here almost every weekday to go to class! (but usually paid too much attention to the traffic lights to the left than to notice the spring blossoms...)

Spring at UC Berkeley

Young cherry trees that line the entrance to the university. Can really feel the youth of the trees by how the flowers blossom upwards and refuse to scatter the petals in the Spring breeze!

A few weeks ago this tree was still all flowers on bare branches, but by Spring Break this week, I can barely notice the flowers if I'm not paying attention to them. Kudos to the few flowers that persisted until the official start of Spring on campus!

Fabrics Section, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store, El Cerrito

Probably my most colourful sketch to date! After finishing the first row of fabric rolls, and with a already muddy water jar and 80% covered palette, I realized what I have gotten myself into... at least the last row didn't turn out looking muddier. Usually I finish my sketches with a used jar of distinctive hue, but this time it was a completely neutral grey! Probably meaning there is indeed a comprehensive selection of fabric colours~
