Sunday 21st February - Nightscapes


Days are getting longer and there's no need to turn the lights on until late in the afternoon. But when the evening falls, colors fade and shapes dissolve in the darkness. Familiar things drift away and our focus changes.  

This weekend let's use some nocturnal tones on our palettes and explore how different the places we usually draw look under warm streetlights, or the soft light of a reading lamp, or moonlight coming through the window... 

If you would like your sketch to be added to please either post it to the WhatsApp Social Dublin Sketchers group or email it to (jpeg format). Please make it low-res and properly orientated for posting to the website. If you're on Instagram, use #dublinsketchers #urbansketchers

Looking forward to seeing everyone's work.

If you are new to Dublin Sketchers - we normally get together on a Sunday afternoon somewhere around Dublin to sketch from 2-4pm, and meet at 4pm for a drink and to check out each other's work.

We’re doing things a bit differently at the moment.

On Sunday 21st February, at 4pm we'll meet on Zoom to show each other our work over a drink (bring your own). You'll need the meeting ID and password to join. If you are on the Dublin Sketchers What'sApp group, you'll find the info there. If not, email before noon on Sunday to ask for the details. There'll be a waiting room to join the Zoom, so wait a few minutes to join.
