Sofia & Sugar

Life drawing
“Guardians”, 2019, charcoal pencils on toned tan sketchbook, 12″ x 12″

Drawn from life at Candid Arts Trust Islington, October 2019.

Drawn as part of a Hallowe’en special event (I took the day off work for it to attend in the afternoon; my other blog at Rewind will probably explain better why I love the festival so much), this pose felt really powerful. I added a few little flourishes – blacked out eyes for Sugar, whited out for Sofia, to emphasise their preternatural calm. I loved working with the contrasts and the similarities, and the way they seemed to complement each other so easily.
