Lady in red..

Couldn't go sketching today with the Sketchers, so did a little bit at home from a magazine.. kept me occupied for a while! I've uploaded the early stages for reference and a shot before I filled in the dress with a nice bright red marker!

Africa Day - Iveagh Gardens 24th May

What an atmosphere! Such vibrant colours, huge smiles and fantastic music - a great festival all round. The weather also helped of course but it really did make me appreciate the simple things in life.

Bodies Exhibition

Really enjoyed the exhibition, great opportunity! Found it very hard to sketch, the detail and the subject matter proved too much for me!

More black and white, must get in some colour at some stage.. for a day so full of colour as today especially! The gardens were teaming with families and children, really lovely day.

Sunday 22nd Feb - Hugh Lane Gallery

Tea in the Garden - Walter Osborne

Did a quick sketch that just wasn't working out, shown below. Resorted to doing more "squiggles" which I enjoyed! This is Walter Osborne's "Tea in the Garden", with a woman sitting pouring tea at the table, the grandmother sitting on a bench behind and the children playing in the foreground. Here's the original!

First sketch was this one.
