In Armor!

Last night’s AFK Drink & Draw was very well attended.  I think it had to do with the models.  We enjoyed something unusual:  a man and a woman in 1400’s plate armor!  Thanks to Walt and Carolyn for their endurance!

20 minutes! I didn’t include Walt but he was standing.

They participate in SCA equestrian events and are also member of Seattle Knights.  I asked about the horses they ride, which are Quarter Horses.

I’ve been involved in the SCA for decades.  I’m not currently very active.  However, great familiarity with this sort of armor probably made it easier to draw!

  1. Great sketches from your Drink & Draw…love the last one. The NYC Urban Sketchers were going to a Drink & Draw in Brooklyn but I couldn’t meet them. It will be interesting to see what they sketched.
