Baroque to the Future… Dr Sketchy’s Goes Rococo

Marnie Scarlet

It was all powdered wigs and crinoline at the Victoria in Birmingham for Dr Sketchy’s back in January. The theme was Rococo Rocks, so with Sophia Copolla’s Marie Antionette playing in the background we were in for an evening of baroque burlesque life drawing.

Desert Island Doodles – Dr Sketchy’s on Paradise Island

Mysti Vine

Aloha! and welcome to Paradise Island (no, not that one), the setting for the most recent outing for Dr Sketchy’s in Birmingham.

And it’s bombs away for July’s Dr Sketchy’s Birmingham with a bevy of Beauties of the Blitz. With a World War II theme, our Field Marshall for the evening, Liberty Pink lead us into battle with a rousing rendition of Bless ’em All.

Still life at Bodies Revealed

Another late one, but back at the end of October I went along to the press launch of the Bodies Revealed exhibition at the Custard Factory in Birmingham.
