Live Sketching at the San Diego Opera

Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of Cast Rehearsing Pirates of Penzance at the SD Opera

Pirates of Penzance at the SD Opera

The San Diego Opera invites artists to its first rehearsal for many of its productions such as its upcoming Pirates of Penzance. We get to sit up close in magnificent chairs and sketch just as fast as we possibly can. I will go back later and make some changes to some of these sketches, but for now here is what I have.


I began most of these sketches by drawing with pastel pencil on black paper. Sometimes the scene changed before I got a chance to add color. But I did take some pictures and may go back and add color to the sketches like the two below.
