Burlesque Berlin Sketchbook
One of the things I love more about Berlin is its burlesque and cabaret tradition. Although drawing more academic nude models is still fun and a great practice, I really dig the sessions with whimsical costumes, wigs, latex and feathers that challenge you to draw unusual poses and textures in a few minutes. Both as regular performances at cafes or clubs (you have to be lucky enough to have your sketchbook at hand), or as scheduled sessions for artists such as the amazing "Dr.Sketchy", Berlin offers plenty of fun options to escape the computer and make some fast drawings from life.
All the sketches are done with pencil or brushpen in 1-20 minutes (watercolor accents are finished and cleaned up at the studio, see below for materials).Venue, session and performers credited in each caption.
My go-to sketch supplies:
-Pentel GFKP Brushpen, TOUCH alcohol markers (grey set), 2 mm lead holder and lead sharpener,Pentel Waterbrush, Windsor and Newton mini watercolor set, Sketchbook by Boesner Berlin, Stillman and Birn watercolor pad, translucent sketch paper 12 x12 Inches from LeMaxi. Drawings I like better are collected together using Adobe Photoshop.
Thanks for checking the project and following!
