from here to fraternity

chi phi frat house
One of the many fraternity houses that line Russell Blvd, on the edge of the UC Davis campus. This was drawn over a couple of lunchtimes; I had to chi phi frat house (unfinished) cycle back up today to finish off the drawing and add the colour. It was however grey today, so I kept in the fluffy clouds and blue skies from yesterday. And wow, that was some gnarled up tree! This is the Chi Phi frat house. Chi Phi is an old national frat, founded in 1824, but the UC Davis chapter’s been here since 1969. Ok, enough facts. If you’re interested in how it looked after the first lunchtime, the work in progress is on the right there.

    I do like your drawings Pete. I did some sketches in Berkeley in Jan this year, so was intrigued that you are near UC Davis. I am doing a drawing at the moment with a similar huge Morton Bay Fig. I might make a progress shot.
    Cheers, Erin
