Holiday Fun by Joan Tavolott

I guess this sort of fits the theme. My sketch group didn't meet over the last few weeks due to the holidays, so we had our holiday gathering and sketch last night at The Cheese Patch, a fun local cheese and wine shop. We all were sipping our wine, nibbling on cheese, and sketching the displays like this one. They still had Christmas decorations up and pretty baskets.


  1. Lovely sketch Joan, I can feel the holiday spirit!

  2. What a fantastic painting Joan, i love it, and what a great place to go with your friends. This definitely fits the theme of holiday fun.

  3. Great theme piece. I love your chosen colors and the depth perception you achieved from front to middle to back! I'm working on this.

  4. Thanks Elaine!

    Anne, thanks. We seek out different indoor places to sketch at this time of year.

    Lynn, I love sketching in places like that. Thanks.

  5. How delightful that you have this group and wonderful sketch of the place ~

    Happy Week to you,
