1st entry for Nov 7, 2014

On the Friday night I got out to the Dr. Sketchy's session at Round Venue. Performance artist Obskyura was working that night, with a fame/celebrity starter ensemble. These are a 5-minute study above,  a 5-minute line drawing and some 1-minute and 2-minute studies below.

(Among her props were a gold microphone and a hot-pink assault rifle with white stars.)

 These are all on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper. I tried using a `woodless' 4B water-soluble graphite pencil for these rather than a pen. I found the marks a little thick for my taste and the pencil went blunt fast, but they do read fairly nicely reproduced small-scale.
