As a warm up for my drawing, I like to do a lot of figure sketches. As I have a fondness for burlesque, a lot of my sketches revolve around that theme. Behold, a feathered lady and an aerial hoop artist.
After a good while of not putting pen to paper with a life model in the room, I thought it would be a grand idea to flex the ol’ life drawing skills at a one off (or every few months anyway) burlesque life drawing evening at Bristol Folk House. The models Delilah Di Sgrace and Ally Katte were in their Christmassy finery creating both interesting and festive poses. I did particularly like the one where Delilah Di Sgrace rolled up onto her shoulders, fair play to her holding that for 10 minutes! The following are some of the images that came from my work of the night, more will be uploaded as I have opportunity to get them up. Click an image for a closer look!
