Sketchy on the Detail

Draw a little every day

Y2D302 and student life

I spent most of today at university, picking up more readers, researching for projects, attending tutorials, signing up for the Student Union and generally becoming a proper tertiary scholar. It’s all a little bewildering and intrepid but mostly exciting and great fun. And I love that I can take study breaks next door in the gallery, sketching the displays such as the two Nicholas below (though technically one is a Nikolaus).

Y2D301 and study break

Today has been all about preparation for tomorrow’s class, which is on Australian Indigenous Art. This is something I naught about, so will be a steep learning curve. At the moment I am taking a break from all the readers to sketch one of the landscape photos from a textbook. It’s all relevant….

Y2D300 and bright eyes

First day of university for me, and I was up early. Not for classes mind, they don’t start until 4pm, but for the plumber who was coming around to fix my leaky kitchen pipes. I went into uni early anyway, to pick up my readers, investigate the library, and draw in the Gallery next door. Preparation for class, of course. ;-)

Y2D299 and shopping queen

I may have already mentioned how tired I am of shopping. It is not fun shopping, and by that I meant it is neither for books, art supplies or artworks. But the end is in sight, and I only have a few more piece to get for the house. Methinks six and a half bookshelves should be enough for now. So this is a little time out to sketch fellow shoppers at Ikea today, and to bring all my posts up to date.

Y2D298 and strolls

The sun appeared in the afternoon, just in time for me to go to my ballet class. It’s a short stroll through the local park, with its tree-lined avenue, and makes for a lovely afternoon. Class was fun, though I am not sure how much I have learnt. But I will go next week, and try not to look quite so serious and/or terrified. And red.

Y2D297 and bracing

I finally walked down around the shopping precinct during a break in the weather. There are some dangerous shops there, but it is still nice at the end, where the square meets the jetty, and the locals are enjoying the bracing weather.

Y2D296 and time capsules

Of course with all this unpacking, you come across things you forgot you had…the boxes become little time capsules. So you stop to investigate the object and memory, being it a book, photo or ornament.

Y2D295 and juggling

Another piece of furniture to add to the collection, this time another ‘display’ cabinet, to put all my ‘good’ glassware and ceramics in. So now I am trying the sort out what goes where…all a matter of juggling space and crockery.

Y2D294 and twinkle toes

I booked myself in to an adult beginner ballet class for the weekend. I’ve always wanted to do ballet but as a child I think I was not patience enough to do it. Now I am older and just a smidgeon wiser, I may stick to it better.

Y2D293 and settling in

There is still so much to get for my new place, one of the problems of moving back with half a house, but at least my bedroom is starting to take shape with its two new bookcases.
