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!
A little while ago (sometime in February I believe) I mentioned that I’d been to a couple Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School classes. I’d heard about them and had wanted to go for ages and when I finally managed to go, I went to 2 in one week! I really enjoyed the classes, the models were really diverse and it was good to get back into life drawing – which I hadn’t done in a while – and the event was fun! Something different. Here are some pictures from the Falmouth evening:

The following are of Lady Allura (who had fantastic poise, I must say)
This heart drawing was part of a challenge where you had to draw half on the heart and then try and match it up with someone else’s half. After a failed attempt of just drawing on the heart I realised it was much easier to draw the whole figure across the 2 bits of paper. Genius eh?
The next set of drawings are of the elegant Suzie Sequin
And here we have some lovely roller derby girls…
Last Tuesday saw me at my first ever Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, a life drawing event where cabaret gets involved. Pictures from that evening will be included shortly but tonight, since having a taste of drawing burlesque beauties recently, I found Ophelia Bitz (online of course) a burlesque performer that I had seen and admired before. This is the ensuing sketch…
