Saturday:) Some More Sanctuary Sketches

“People who want you in their lives, respect you whether you are grapes or fine wine.”

Thursday afternoon, I stopped over at St. Gabriel for Adoration in the chapel, followed by some sketching in the main sanctuary,

There are three arched windows on either side of the altar, way up high where you can barely see the detail. I always take a picture so I can zoom in and see a little more detail.
I chose the more detailed one of the three. Hmm? Maybe the cloud grouping would have been easier. 🤦‍♀️👩🏻‍🎨

I usually sketch for a couple of hours, then I finish the rest at home on Saturday.

There were a lot of little grapes that had to be drawn in several times because I use a tiny bit of Kleenex to shade and soften, which requires redrawing each line. Then… for the fun part… my Artisto app on my phone transforms the simple sketch into a burst of color. Cool!
The mosaic is usually my favorite.
Well, these are most of my favorites. It’s always exciting to see what turns up.
