Sunday 19th February - National Print Museum

On Sunday the 19th of February we are going yo meet at the National Print Museum (Garrison Chapel, Beggar's Bush Barracks, Haddington Rd, Dublin 4) from 2pm.
The Museum has let us in for free, but donations from the sketchers would be very kind.
If it’s your first time, all you need to do is to pick something to draw and get stuck in.
You will soon notice other people carrying a sketchbook. New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself. It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get to know everybody over coffee from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.
Here's the location on Google Maps:

Hope to see you there!

Random sketches from the Aran Islands

A few random sketches from the Aran Islands.....
















Sunday sketches from Aran Islands

After a hearty breakfast, we explored the west side of the Island, bumping into old friends and getting lost among the dry stone walls.












Saturday in the West

On Saturday, we spread out across the Island to discover ruined castles and churches, sea scapes, romantic hideaways, stunning skies.... and the pub.


























Friday on Inis Oirr

On Friday, after a hearty breakfast, we explored the coast line towards the shipwreck and down towards the Light house. Heading back to our accommodation, we were hungry for lunch and mighty cups of tea. In the afternoon, we continued our explorations of sea and shore.
