Marlay Park Market

Well.. a great day at Marlay park CoCo market was had. Great that the sun came too. Tried a few sketches, but still quite rusty. I love the way people are so friendly and interested and come over for a chat. Anyway hope you like the drawings. I must put up some of my finished pieces that are hangin round the house too... a busy Sunday I foresee!

Have a few more rough sketches which I hope to finish off this week. And if they're lucky I might even promote some of them to acrylic on canvas!

The Book Stall.. have ommitted the people but hope to put them in for a finished piece.

The Docks with the Sketching Club

Joined the Dublin Sketchers and we met on the Sean O'Casey bridge on the Docks and went for a wander. Got a bit chilly though so had to get coffee soon enough!

Finding it tough enough to draw what i actually see rather than what I think is there... suppose it'll just take practice.

The Boat on the North Side of the Docks.

A few sketches from the summer

Bushy Park, Terenure

While the sun was briefly with us back in June, I went down to Bushy Park to draw. I realised my talents do not lie i
n drawing people... must work on that! But I do love the little stage that's down the end.
