Felt it was time for a new sketch of Hart Hall. It’s one of the more sketchable buildings on campus. The weather has been very hot lately, hitting at least 90 every day (and well over 100 for many of them), a little unbearable. These long hot Davis summers don’t seem to be getting any shorter or cooler.
Here are a few of my older sketches of this building. This one is from 2008, also sketched in a long hot summer. I was still getting used to the long hot summers then. 2008, feels a lifetime ago now.
This one is from March 2014, with a still fairly leafless tree in the foreground.
And this one is six years old, May 2011, not officially summer yet but still bloody hot, I’ll bet.

It is always interesting to see how your style has evolved over the years. I have only lived in the US for almost 4 years now but I do find myself wondering if my British body will ever acclimate to American summers.
The first one was the worst for me. One of the hottest summers I’ve still yet experienced, in 2006 (though matched a few times since), but as a new immigrant from cloudy London it was a shock. And then one day going from Davis (115 degrees) down to San Francisco (65 degrees), that was a bigger shock!
