St. Theodosius - Cleveland, Ohio The onion domes are the dominant elements of this extraordinary building, and that is what I tried to capture. The walls are there merely to support those beautiful domes. The domes have a heavy Russian influence and are clad in copper, which gives them that greenish cast.

St. Stephan - Cleveland, Ohio This beautiful church is located on W. 54th St. in Cleveland, Ohio. I did this sketch, en plain air on a 38º F. day in November 2012. It was scheduled to be closed in 2009, but happily it remains open today. The interior is spectacular, and I plan to do more sketches there at some point.

The Illuminating Co. Building
Cleveland, Ohio (c. 1915)
I took a reference photograph while standing on the ground. I didn’t like that point of view, so I changed the perspective to look as if I were a bird flying 40 to 50 feet above the ground. I like this vantage point because it tells a story different from the one we are used to in our daily lives—walking about on the ground.

iPad Sketches Drawings Art Architect Thomas Woodman St. Louis Cathedral New Orleans Louisiana Jackson Square French Quarter Catholic church Architecture
St. Louis Cathedral - New Orleans, Louisiana I did this en plein air sketch at 7 A.M. I had to wait a half hour for the sun to rise high enough to cast light across the facades of the church. By the time I finished I had a small gallery of people watching with amazement as I sketched on a sheet of glass. I must admit now that I was as incredulous as they were. The digital world is miraculous.

Guarda, Switzerland In the Engadin Region in the Canton of Graubünden Switzerland, this is a typical-looking building structure. It is identifiable by its meter-thick walls, splayed windows, arched entry doors, and sgraffito etched stucco surfaces. The towns and villages are located along the slopes that define the Inn River.

iPad Sketches Drawings Art Architect Thomas Woodman St. Gothard Pass Switzerland Swiss Alps Mountain Pass
St. Gothard Pass 2 - Switzerland I had been through this pass on several occasions, and I found that this early-evening scene was reminiscent of many mountain passes. Its misty look results from the damp air condensing in the cooling temperatures. This hospitz offers shelter for weary travelers during the winter months when the snow depth can reach ten feet or more.
