Sketchy on the Detail

Draw a little every day

Month: August, 2014

Y2D308 and rudie toots

I was in the gallery again today (what a surprise) but I took a break from study/research to sketch one of the nude sculptures that are dotted around the place (shocking!). I haven’t done a life drawing for ages, so sculpture is as good a model as it is going to get for me…



Y2D307 and more research

For a course that is only two evenings a week, I seem to spend seven days researching, either reading, being in the library or studying the paintings in the gallery….I don’t know how my fellow students manage part-time or full-time jobs as well.


Y2D306 and dry

I don’t mean the weather, though it is still a sunny day. Not that I managed to enjoy any of it, with all the reading I need to do before tomorrow’s lecture. Some of it is so dry, it really makes for hard work. More fun to go researching on the National Library website, there are lots of interesting things to see there.


This is just from one of the afternoon breaks, before I expired from dullness….

Y2D305 and sea calling

It was a lovely day, full of warmth and sunshine, so I walked to the beach and jetty to do some sketching and enjoy the sand on my toes.


I did get a little frustrated with my people…I haven’t sketched figures properly for quite a while and have really become out of practice.

Y2D304 and any excuse

All my assignments involve me spending vast amounts of time at the gallery, so I get to draw all sorts of objects under the banner of “research”. Terrible, isn’t it?


Y2D303 and comfort at last

My new arm chair has arrived at last and I’ve been making full use of it’s coziness by reading next to the fire….reading for university, of course, but reading nonetheless.


Now my lounge room is starting to look like someone lives there and not just a dumping ground.
