'Midnight Drawing' - a post mortem.

Saturday evening saw AMi’s ‘Midnight Drawing’ event happen at Sussex County Arts Club, in Brighton.

10 artists arrived in the dark Mews leading to the club to candlelight and a chalk VII insignia. Once inside, easels were set up, boards and paper, masking tape, charcoal and oils, and at 10pm, the evening began.

The 6 models began a 3 hour pose, to a soundtrack of ticking clocks, chimes and bells. Every half an hour, each model held 3 separate short poses, accompanied by 3 songs chosen by each model.

At the sound of midnight, and Pink Floyd’s ‘Time’, all models and artists stopped for a break, where wine and absinthe were handed round, whilst all.

The final section saw the evening increase in intensity somewhat, as artists pushed themselves to finish their creations and the models held the long pose for just one more hour…

1am- the pose was over, and some wonderful work was created. It was great to see so many artists tackle the whole pose, as well as almost full sketchbooks of short abstract poses, and even some ipad drawings.

All of us here at Artists, Models, iNK were pleased with the way the evening went, and its safe to say all those in attendance enjoyed the event too.

Worth discussing is wether the creating of art at such a late hour, affecting the way any of us worked- both artists and models.
