Holiday Sketches

The sketch below was done on my iPad before Mass on Christmas Eve. Our church gets very crowded and does a Mass upstairs and one downstairs. We went a half hour before the service was scheduled to start and there were very lucky to find seats downstairs in the hall. I brought along my iPad because I knew we would be waiting for a while before even the Christmas carols started.

This was sketched as a gift card for someone in the family. It is one of my many ornaments from my tree.


  1. Your iPad sketching style is starting to look quite similar to your "normal" sketching style. . . You must be feeling more comfortable with the tools! I have a long way to go before it feels (or looks) "normal"! Ha, ha!


  2. Hi Joan, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! I have enjoyed seeing all your Christmas ornaments and reading the stories behind them - what a lovely idea to blog about them. Love your Christmas tree and the skaters in Bryant park. Great to see your ipad sketches too.
    Wishing you a Happy New Year! May 2016 be a wonderful year for you!

  3. What a fantastic way to finish the year with the Urban sketchers. Your sketches always bring on the WOW factor!
