Sorrento Hotel Lounge and Bar

Last week I went to the Sorrento Hotel with a friend for a drink and time to sketch.  I was told it was a great place to sketch.  What a wonderful cozy room with a fireplace and decked out in holiday greenery.  Here is the first sketch I did.

Sketchouting at EMP

Sunday a large group of us met at the EMP for our monthly Sketch Outing.  It was a challenge to sketch a space with very view orthogonal walls.  Here is what I was able to do.

City Cantabile Choir Celtic Christmas Concert

Saturday night we went to a concert put on by director Fred West and the City Cantabile Choir.  It was a Celtic Christmas Concert with a choir singing medieval and Irish songs, a pageantry of hand made lanterns,  Uillean pipes, fiddle and Celtic harp instrumentals and step dancing performed by two 11 year old children who were  Open Champion Level dancers.  What a wonderful and different Christmas Concert.  I was intrigued by the lighting and the lantern processional.  This is a sketch from it.

First Sketch from the Soulumination Sale

Waiting in Line for Soulumination Sale to open.
This was the scene at the Soulumination Sale.  Waiting for the doors to open.  They had plenty of stuff to sell, but people got there early to be able to get their first choice in wreaths and other items.
It was a cozy site inside compared to the rain outside.  I sketched on location but had to add color later because of the rain.
