Meeker Mansion at turn of the year

Despite the freezing weather with fog, 21 sketchers met at the Meeker Mansion in Puyallup this morning.  It was still beautifully decorated for Christmas.

I did two sketches with those decorations.  The first was a small clock on the wall with a set of china choristers underneath on the table.

While sketching this, I have a good conversation with Roy’s grandson.  He had a lot of good, insightful, questions about drawing.  Roy had just bought him a sketchbook and pens for Christmas and he did a very good job on his sketch!

I dashed off this next sketch in the 10 minutes remaining!.  It depicts the top of the banister with holiday bow and an upstairs door with a large wreath.

We shared sketches and then filled the stairs with our group shot.
