Gyogy Gordon’s exhibition @ University Library Gallery, Parkinson Building, University of Leeds.
This is my second sketch club involvement. Met a few people who were really interested in drawing. They are not young – like me; but they came to the Gallery for the sketch practices on each Friday – doing better than me. Lovely guys.
This was the first time and the only time so far that I joined the university sketch club.
It’s a routine activity from 12:30 to 15:30 pm each Friday sponsored by Leeds University Library Gallery. It’s open to everyone and all drawing materials are provided. You can stay for ten minutes or the full 3 hours. I spent 2 hours there drawing the statue of Sir Einstein. I guess the statue is made of coarse clay so it was very difficult to draw the special texture. Anyway, I paid more attention to the experience, so the outcome became less important.
I drew this picture using a black ink pen when I was studying in Laidlaw Library. The church is just adjacent to the library, and I could see it from the window when I sat in the quiet study room on the second or third floor. I spent quite a lot of time in Laidlaw in the summer and autumn of 2016. It was a memorable experience.
This is a new, modern, clean and quiet living area. It’s very near to the School of Civil Engineering. When I have classes in the school building, I only need five minutes to walk from my accommodation to the classroom, which is very convenient.
