Sketchcrawl #18

Had too much stuff to do at home, so decided to do Sketchcrawl here in CT instead of joining the NYC bunch. Started off at the Harry Bennett branch of the Ferguson Library:

Then we went to dinner and a jazz performance at the Silvermine Tavern in Norwalk:

A View of the Red Carpet

Had dinner at Capriccio Cafe on 2/24, and could see the local officials and well-heeled guests arriving for the Oscar party at the Avon Theatre across the street. Sketched the scene between pasta and dessert; had to split the scene in two because it wouldn't all fit on the page to scale. (The tent was really below/in front of the theatre part.) Lots of lovely gowns and dapper tuxes.
