you laid it down for all to see

I'm off to another Dr. Sketchy Sheffield tonight, to draw some Burlesque lovelies. Gathering all my pens and sketchbooks together for that made me realise that, as yet, I haven't even posted the drawings from the last Dr.Sketchy evening here on my blog. The last event was a little different as, instead of the Burlesque girls, we had the Sheffield Steel Rollergirls posing for us. And they were great.

It seemed like they'd put a whole lot of thought into those poses too. How they stayed in the one above for fifteen minutes I don't know. Especially the girls at the bottom of the pile. But they are no wimps.

I'm still not as confident in my life drawing as I am in other areas so I always start off with some blind contour sketches as below. Life drawing is still so new to me. I love that though; I love having so much to learn.

That top drawing-wow. And amazing indeed that they held that pose.

Those rough sketches are pretty cool.

Thank you, guys.

Yeah, can you imagine the poor girl at the bottom of the pile. But, as I said, they are tough girls and did amazingly as they'd never modelled before.
