New sketches from New York

We’re well into Paris Fashion Week and I haven’t even begun to upload my work from New York yet. My photos are terrible, thanks to the horrible lighting at Lincoln Center (deliberately designed to make it impossible to take iPhone pics, I wonder?), so I won’t inflict them on you. Instead, here are a few more sketches from the audience. Paris should, I think, be more fruitful – somehow it seems easier to sketch there; I’m less self-conscious, and the other audience members less likely to engage in friendly chatter, which means more time to draw! In the meantime, this is what I have from NYFW. I think the next step is to find a way to do colour without carrying huge art kits around. I feel an iPad coming on…

  1. Excellent, Gemma! Lovely sketches – they put me in mind of similar things done by Cecil Beaton – keep it up, much more fun that photos!
