Sketches from the Botanic Gardens - 17 February 2019

A gloriously sunny day at the Botanic Gardens - always busy, even in February. We were given special access to the Gallery, upstairs from the café, where we had panoramic views of the majestic green house and gardens, while staying warm and cosy. Thank you so much to all the staff at the Botanic Gardens!!










Sunday 17th February at Botanic Gardens


On Sunday the 17th of February Dublin Sketchers will sketch at the Botanic Gardens from 2pm. The gallery upstairs from the café is available to sketch from, as well as the gardens and greenhouses.

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink 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.

Icy weather forcast today, however, it was proved to be not as bad as forecast, and our hardy annuals made it to the Chinese Dancing in Temple Bar.!
