Oh-oh Christmas Tree

The new year got off to a slow start as far as sketching is concerned. Inspired by some sketches I saw online I finally sketched our Christmas tree (yes, it’s still up!). Having completed the drawing I looked at the pencil I’d used and exclaimed “Oh-oh!” I had used a water soluble dark blue by mistake. Oh well, I just had to work with it and try not to make a muddy mess.

Obviously I didn’t draw every decoration, just a few special ones. And the scary Santa sitting below – a craft project from about 40 years ago!

This sketch will be a reminder of the quiet covid Christmas and how lucky we felt to be safe and healthy.

  1. Nice.

    Santa there is not really scary, just art-sy looking. All good.

    Love the creche scene. A hint of it but still clear.
