the o.c.

orange court, davis

I decided it was about time I drew this, the entranceway to Orange Court off E Street in Davis. It’s a little courtyard of restaurants and cafes and small businesses (I drew inside here once last year). I’m interested in these off-strip places in Davis, the interstitial spaces, the alleys and courtyard, and in fact the October sketchcrawl will largely focus on those places, I think. There are some interesting spaces behind the main buildings. Further up E Street, there are some cool little shops and cafes hidden away between the Pence Gallery and Bizarro Comics. For this drawing, which again is on slightly larger Strathmore hot press paper as part of my latest Davis series, I stood by my bike in a little bit of shade on Tuesday lunchtime and drew most of it, finishing off details and the colour when I got home.

    I’ve strolled through your site. Your building drawings are professional and expert. Surely you have had architectural training. The detail is amazing. I’ll be back! :)
