Sketching Berkeley's Northside

LaVals by Cathy McAuliffe
We took advantage of the absence of U. C. Berkeley students to sketch in the area known as the Northside on Euclid between Hearst and Ridge Road. Cathy sketched the view looking up Euclid (above), capturing LaVal's beer sign and Jana got the same sign looking down the Euclid (below).

Cathy sketched some tall palm trees and one more scene on Euclid.

Then we sat on the balcony of the modern Asian Studies building to sketch the U.C. Berkeley Library, also known as the Doe Library which was built in 1911 and is open 24 hours a day. When the days get too short to sketch outdoors we'll take our Tuesday night sketching indoors to explore the interior of this beautiful building.
