After the Turnstyle location a few of us went to another event, Dr. Sketchy, at the Flute Bar. For those of you who don't know about Dr. Sketchy here is a blurb from their website or you can click on the link above:
Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art school is the world's premier alt.drawing movement. Artists draw glamorous underground performers in an atmosphere of boozy conviviality. Found in 2005 in a dive bar in Brooklyn, Dr. Sketchy's has now spread to over 100 cities around the world.
The theme for the afternoon was Dior. Normally there are several models in various stages of dress/undress. We had one lovely model, Chantal, who started out posing in her vintage 60's bra and panties and proceeded to put on more clothing as the poses went on. They usually begin with several 1 minute poses, moving on to 5 minute poses, then longer poses, and back to short poses again. You really have to sketch quickly for many of the poses, and use a medium that you can use easily. I used either pencil or a water-soluble pencil for the beginning poses, adding watercolors and ink for the longer poses.
Chantal had some gorgeous clothes that are original Dior's. She said later that about 90% of the time she dresses in vintage clothing.
