Last night was fun. Went to listen to the Boatband at the Beehive pub.
It is a monthly treat to go and listen to this local band. They are excellent musicians and have played gigs all around the country. They play at Glastonbury and other venues. Brilliant to listen to and audience members often join in with songs or playing their own instruments.
I took a sketchpad because I usually do life drawing on a wednesday evening. So this was an opportunity to still draw from life, although they are rapid sketches.
I’m also a member of an urban sketching group, so I was is killing two birds with one stone. I like the fact that there were so many people there but I only managed to draw two of the members of the group as the other two were obscured by the crowd.
I have to say drawing an old plastic skeleton, draped in old clothes, which sits in a corner by the fire, was an interesting challenge. I called that sketch “the regular” at least it kept still!
