Davis, CA: I've sketched the Silo at UC Davis so many times. It's where I occasionally eat lunch (it's full of food places) and pick up my chocolate croissant every morning for breakfast. I feel like I've sketched this Silo complex from most angles but not very often from this one, sat in the entrance to Rock Hall. It was a warm, sunny day, before the much-needed rains came. Sketched during lunchtime in Stillman & Birn Alpha book with brown uniball signo pen. I listened to a Melvyn Bragg "In Our Time" podcast about Merlin (the wizard) while sketching, not that it comes through in any way, unless you count the red dragon and the white dragon battling in a cave deep underground.
