Last night was Dr Sketchy, Lichtenstein at the NGA. The venue was huge so lots of space to move about and breath! The models were all different shapes & sizes and wore various costumes associated with the pop art theme for the night. I happened to join a table of talented & entertaining ladies which was located right next to the model I drew on Monday night! I didn't recognise her at first behind spotty body paint and blond wig but I did immediately recognise her tattoo! It was handy to draw a familiar model for warm ups before working on final sketches. My best drawings from the night were of a resistance fighter, Calamity Jane and Wonder Woman which I won a prize for ;-D That definitely made my night! The wine, mini burgers and fish & chips were also a bonus...
So to sum up, the location was brilliant with perfect lighting and loads of space, great music and entertainment (I ended up refining some drawings during the acts whilst glancing up now and then), tasty food, big tables to work at with loads of sketch pads and pencils supplied. I'd definitely go again.
