Suhita Shirodkar in Half Moon Bay, California.
How fantastic a name is this? The Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society. To top that off, this live jazz venue is located right on Miramar Beach in Half Moon Bay. Sketching to live music is one of my favorite things to do: capturing the music, the atmosphere and the action (with a glass of wine at hand)... it doesn't get much better than that.
Here are some sketches of the Marcus Shelby Orchestra featuring Tiffany Austin.
Since I sketched almost all the pieces from one spot, it was interesting to see how the sketches got simpler and simpler, much less like portraits and much more a capture of the energy and the music as I went along.
More sketches from the evening and a little bit about the sketch kit I'm using here on my blog.
