Dr Sketchy’s came to the MCA again a couple of weeks ago. Fabulous again! The link above will take you to an image where you can see the setup – we’re all in a big u-shape with three models to draw. That image is from last year, and you can see my drawings from last year here.
This year was related to the current exhibition of Yinka Shonibare so the models wore some interesting outfits. That exhibition finishes very soon, but if it comes to a place near you – don’t miss it!
Again, there were three models, so it was easy to see well, but I must say we were awfully close and that’s a challenge in itself.
These first two drawings were only two-minute ones, which were a lot better than the ones I did a year ago.
The next two drawings are 5-minute ones. That’s not a nipple – it’s a flower stuck there. I was happy enough with these two, but the ten-minute ones were not great.
After that, I decided to be very daring for the 15-minute ones & just go for it with a pen!
I just scribbled & scribbled as fast as I could go, then dabbed on some watercolour- though my waterbrush wasn’t co-operating so well.
that mistake again.
