I tend to draw a lot of not all that great stuff at events like this… performers are on-stage briefly, so it makes for a lot of not-so-great sketches, and perhaps a few good ones… which is fine.
The group above, Cuatro Noches de Luna, played a somewhat longer set, so I got a chance to do a somewhat more finished piece showing them… though still really quick… with lots of rough edges (and nearly add badly-drawn faces – oh welllll!) Also they moved around when they switched instruments – so I had to improvise a little. The woman on the right was playing the smallish guitar instrument started on my right, then moved over to the left by the time I got to draw her… so she’s actually facing the group, though in the image it looks like her back is to them.
The above sketch was done with a basic uniball pen – the ones below with the brush pen I’ve been using a lot lately.
Here’s a full page of sketches – some of which are somewhat successful:
and one more page of images I think turned out well enough:
Overall I was impressed with the quality of the performances… and was happy to show off some of my better sketches to some friends there and to a few of the folks depicted.
