Dr Sketchy’s life drawing has been my “no stress art time” for so many years. The chaotic joyful atmosphere makes it impossible to take “art-ing” too seriously. I really enjoy the chance to experiment and rapidly capture something of these spectacular performers.
Thank you Mel for this wonderful experience 💖 And thank you to the beautiful rainbow tornado Ruby Slippers! 🌈
From no life drawing to two sessions back to back! Sketching Tease Rex at Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne was an absolute blast! Perhaps the first ever burlesque dancer? The evening than heated up with the lovely and crimson Miss Maple Rose.
First life drawing session for 2018! Sketching the beautiful Ferri and Wanda the snake in From Dusk till Dawn Santanico Pandemonium tribute! Very rapid sketches because Wanda kept shifting positions. But a great challenge to shake off the rust.
Dancing! Drawing! Disco! Dr. Sketchy’s Life drawing with The SuperVixens! What a way to end the year! Thank you Mel for an amazing year of Dr. Sketchys <3
Very rapid sketches trying to capture as much of these gorgeous groovy gals as I could.
Merry Christmas to all my Dr. Sketchy’s art family and I can’t wait to see you all next year!
I just realised that I forgot to post my favourite drawing from the last Dr Sketchy’s session! I was really happy with this one, I can’t believe I left it out! Thank you again Killjoy the Show for an amazing night.
I am looking forward to the next session. I’m starting to miss my more regular classes. It will be great to have a night of fun art again soon.
At the last Dr Sketchy’s life drawing session we had the pleasure of having 3 amazing performers from Killjoy the Show as our models. Not only that but they had their band live on stage with them to perform! Their song with accompanying acrobatics/dance was incredible.
I’m still enjoying my watercolor pencil sketch experiments for the longer poses but I am keeping with my trusty black colored pencil for all the quick drawings. Sadly I wasn’t fast enough to capture much of the dazzling piñata-like beauty hanging from her aerial silks.
A week ago to I taught my last Covert Characters Life Drawing class for the year and I couldn’t have asked for a better night! Friends and familiar faces were there and Silhouettê d’Amour was fantastic as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands.
I really enjoyed experimenting with watercolor pencil and water brush at the last life drawing class I attended so I thought I would try some more. I like how quickly I can brush in some shading and darken shadows by drawing over the top.
Another magical night with Dr Sketchy’s! Camilla & Michelle were dazzling vintage beauties and than beautiful blue muses. The performance and poses to follow inspired by Yves Klein was something truly special!
It was a really fun experiment with drawing with the blue watercolor pencil and then paint over it with water. I then could draw over the wet paper again to emphasis shadows and lines.
Looking forward to the next wild art party!
