Flamingo looks

Flamingo looks

I have just discovered Sketch Appeal, 'a social enterprise on a mission to connect, empower, and uplift people through the joy of sketch'.

What a fun business! Ab Fab all the way. I joined them on Wednesday evening for their weekly Happy Hour which is funded by the National Lottery and free to attend. 

The idea is to draw each other in a Zoom meeting and the host issues challenges such as 'create a new hairstyle'. 

I was captivated by the direct gaze of this model and drew diamonds in her eyes. She also got flamingo earrings and updo.

I experimented with the sketch in Photoshop adding a background and some flamingo feathers.

This is the same girl. Loved drawing her mouth with her teeth showing a little.

We were challenged to draw Naomi Campbell from a photo. It's that famed moment where she collapses, in a crumple on top of Vivienne Westwood platforms.
