Sketches from the Unlit Party

The next artist at the Unlit Party was Sharon Lewis from Brighton. Sharon was on the Keyboard and singing. She has an amazing strong voice and writes beautiful songs.

Sharon Lewis playing at the Unlit PartyI have to work very fast drawing performers and at the same time tune in to the music. If the music is slow and quiet the picture becomes more detailed, with faster songs it becomes expressionist.

After all the performances had long finished she played When I’m Cleaning Windows by George Formby on the ukulele. Not long ago Robert bought a George Formby record to go with our new second hand record player. Being Dutch, Robert had not heard of George Formby, but he loves the song. Dutch people keep their windows very clean.
