Sketchy on the Detail

Draw a little every day

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.

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?

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).

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. 😉

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.

Y2D292 and warming up

The new, or rather old, gas heater is warming up the lounge room a treat, as opposed to the new(er) electric one that doesn’t do much other than blow air about. So much for all this modern technology…

I’ve been rather slack on the posting again, haven’t I. Sorry about that, but at least I now have my printer/scanner so the images will be slightly better.

Y2D286 and made it

*phew*, have made it to Adelaide and picked up the keys to my new house. It was a pretty long drive, leaving at 07:00 Victorian time and arriving 15:00 South Australian time. I stopped off at Mt Gambier, then again at Keith and Talem Bend for sketching breaks. This one is v.quick sketch of the bend in the Murray River.

Y2D281 and home again

Peppi is back from his big trip away and is showing his delight at being home by promptly going to sleep in front of the fire place.
