"Christmas in the Mall"

A couple of quick sketches from this morning's Christmas Sketchabout with the
USkTC's group.  The one on top captures how I am always thinking bout, and
working on, perspective; and capturing only the essence of what is before me. 

This one doesn't have much to do with perspective except maybe in the boxes lying about at the base of the tree.  This one represents my interpretation of the excitement of Christmas to a child:  Santa, the tree, the presents are a part of that image, but so are the bright, jump-off-the-page colors.  To a child, Christmas is a smashing event, larger than anything - and that's what I am depicting here.

  1. The top one has a great mix of detail and not, color and not. It's a great example of your work and it's really great. The bottom one is fun and bright and crazy!!!!! Nice job!!

  2. You are really getting that loose style down to and art. ;-)
