Sketches of the Week and The Nutcracker

So I didn't post an outfit of the week on Monday (more about that below), but I did want to get at least one post done before Christmas. So here are my latest sketches. Above and below are my favorites of the last batch, both done in gouache. 

The scene below is also in gouache, and I was practicing shadows.

I used a sketching app on my phone to do the little Christmas cat below.

So the reason for no outfit post was that we went to the Nutcracker ballet last Friday night and I fully intended to get a shot of my outfit. But it was snowing like crazy and I was hemming and hawing on what to wear that would be cute and practical. So by the time I was dressed and ready, it was time to go! So the best I can give you is this selfie me an my girl took out in front of the O'Shaunessy Auditorium, in the snow!

I had to borrow the pic below, as you aren't allowed to take any photos. This is the second time we've gone to this particular ballet, and it is just magical. It is all my daughter can talk about. And I must admit, I can't stop thinking about it myself.

We definitely want to go again next year!  Have you ever been to the Nutcracker? Have you seen any other ballets?

Great sketches, you are clever!
Glad you and your daughter had a lovely time at the ballet. That's a smashing photo of you both. xxx
