The Troops are heading to the Hugh Lane!


On Sunday the 19th of October, Dublin Sketchers are getting their marching boots on and heading 
to an Exhibition of prints based on the First World War efforts held at the Hugh Lane Gallery.
There will be plenty of other art works on display there and there are interesting views to be taken from the gallery windows, of street scapes and rooftops while keeping the troops dry!
We will meet just inside the Hugh Lane Gallery  at 2 pm and head to the gallery's cafe at 4 pm for coffee and a chat.

Sketches from St Audeons Church

Yesterday we sketched at St Audeon's Church. The rain held off and despite the fact that a concert was taking place in the church, we were made welcome. There were several areas within the grounds to sketch in and some artists went down to neighbouring Christchurch to sketch as well. Here are our sketches:
