TAROT

We drew inspiration from the Tarot deck, from the Major and Minor Arcana cards, for our second visit to The Star by Hackney Downs in January 2014. A packed out event saw people drawing three fabulous models on a relaxed Sunday afternoon 3 hours sketching salon. We had a series dramatic dynamic poses, with models holding swords, skulls and cups to portray a host of different suits, following by longer poses focusing on portrayals of the powerful character cards such as The High Priestess and The Empress. Add in beer, roast dinners and complimentary Tarot readings from Senorita SkEletina and it was a rather fun way to spend a Sunday!

Here are a few sketches. More sketches and photos to follow soon!
