The Mayfair.

I was invited to sketch at The Mayfair this week. It is the old Mayfair cinema that is now a restaurant and bar. It had it's first screening on 15th December 1916 and the last in September/October 1993. It originally cost £5283 to build and it still has some of it's old Art Deco features today. I decided to try the staircase which was not an easy task!

Here is my sketch:

And here are a few photos of some of the features. I think we will be back as we haven't really even scratched the surface of everything there is to draw there.

Here is a link to Puke Ariki if you want a little bit about it's history:
