A great final session last night, and a full house of artists arrived to sketch our last sitter, David Bramwell.
We’ve had some wonderful and varied work being created at these sessions, and I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at the blog if you’ve not been able to make any of the sessions.
If you did attend any of these events, please do feel free to email me scans/photos of your work, as it is fantastic to look back at the work we’ve made.
More pictures to come, but for now, here’s some of my sketches from the past 6 weeks…
I’ve no immediate plans to do a 3rd series of Drawing Brighton, but there’ll be updates if and when it happens, right here.
For now, if you’d like to keep an eye on my own work, which regularly features the wonderful people of Brighton, then please do look at my website.
The final week of Drawing Brighton is upon us, and we have a wonderful Brightonian coming to sit for us- David Bramwell, a ‘one man cottage industry’.
Writer, speaker and co-creator of the now infamous ‘Cheeky Guide to Brighton’, as well as host of Brighton’s Catalyst Club, he devotes a lot of energy and time to recognising and celebrating people and communities around us in this curious and colourful city.
If you’d like to come along to this final session, you can book a space online here:
David can next be seen hosting this years’ TEDxBrighton event. Click here for his website, and news about his many fascinating projects.
For our penultimate session, the wonderful Billie Rae sat for us at Drawing Brighton.
A modern-day Ziegfeld girl, with her fantastic custom-made outfits and ostrich feather fans, she was an absolute pleasure to draw.
Drawing by me.
