Day four

After an day of washing heavy old machines, i was in desperate need of some energy to get me going for the evening. So I bought a coffee at the train station and did some ultra speed sketching: trying to capture the people on the escalator: i could see the persons for approximately 10 seconds, but at the beginning of those from the front, and in the end from above (or the other way around). I stood no chance - but it gave me the energy needed!

Brushpen, A5, 20 min, central train station zurich

Actually, it had a lot more people....but it was really funny

Day three

Today, I hadn't a lot to do (again...), but always something small. In the morning I still had some letters to transcribe (I started with them yesterday) and in between two of them i quickly drew my table. I love the contrast between the clumsy keyboard and the elegant handwriting of those letters. I wish that letters would be used more often today. They are also a more elegant time-document than what our emails and short messages will be in 100 years, if they even still exist then!!

Black marker, A5 (well, its always gonna be A5...), ca 30 min (or even more, those writings...), Schloss Lenzburg

i didn't like the first "B" so i had to rewrite it on separate piece of paper and put it over the old. I definitely have to get more exercise on writing nicely.

Day 2

I hadn't a lot to do today, but never had time to sketch something - so i expect that there will be a lot of commuter train sketches in here.

Brushpen, A5, ca. 20 minutes

I have to get used to the shaking of the train - and a method of putting people on chairs which already drew...

Day One

Today I started my alternative civilian service at the museum in Lenzburg, which is located in the Castle of Lenzburg (actually, its on the "Lenz-castle", since "burg" already means castle). After spending the morning with getting known the castle, i spent the rest of my day doing almost nothing. I even had time for a sketch!

Pencil, A5, about 30 minutes.

These is the view from the north side, where my bureau is, to the south one, across the court, and between the "pallas" on the left and one of the biggest and oldest knight-halls (?) of switzerland on the right side.
