Live drawing – Portraits for the Art Rookie networking event at Lights of Soho

I had a great night live drawing portraits at Lights of Soho for Art Rookie.

To reflect the super cool neon lights that make this venue so unique, I worked in neon colour (pink, yellow or blue) and white on black paper.
