A Stroll in the Park

Last Saturday, once again, the weather ended up being much better than what the app on my phone seemed to indicate in the morning. Towards the evening I decided to take a trip to Marlay Park, not too far from my house. The day was fresh and really bright, and towards the end of my... Continue Reading →

At the Olivier Cornet Gallery

I love visiting the Olivier Cornet Gallery, at 3 Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1, because first of all Olivier is a dear friend and it's always nice to visit him, and secondly because his gallery is full of interesting things to explore and sketch: highly recommended if you love art. As previously, he welcomed Dublin... Continue Reading →

LexIcon, Dún Laoghaire

I liked the visit to the LexIcon library in Dún Laoghaire with the Sketchers. The weather forecast din't look promising, but it ended up being actually really nice. I didn't sketch outdoors for fear that it could still rain, but the big library and large windows that lit the room so well gave me all... Continue Reading →

Good News

I won't be joining the Sketchers this Sunday, as after five months from my separation I finally found a new apartment and I'm moving in just on that day. Can't wait for it! This is a drawing I made on my iPad on Procreate a few weeks ago at Harold's Cross and hadn't yet published... Continue Reading →

The Show Has Begun

And finally the day arrived… This year's Bloomsday at the James Joyce Cultural Center started a little early. Sunday 10th, the Sketchers (of which I am a very proud member for five years or so) have exhibited their works dedicated to what many consider as the greatest novel in English of the twentieth century: Ulysses. My... Continue Reading →

Bloomsday 2018 is here!

This Sunday 10th June, at 4pm, I’ll be exhibiting my work for Bloomsday 2018 at the James Joyce Centre at 35 North Great George’s Street, Dublin 1. It is a project I developed with Dublin Sketchers, and will be part of an exhibition which includes other beautiful works by members of the group. So, if... Continue Reading →

Lotus Eaters

On Sunday I visited Sweny's, the chemist where Leopold Bloom goes to buy various things including a very famous lemon soap bar. I am of course talking about Joyce's Ulysses, and of course I was there with the Sketchers to continue the Bloomsday project (which will be exhibited on 10th June at the James Joyce...

Lazy in the sunny afternoon

Last Sunday I preferred to meet some friends that I hadn't seen for a while instead of going with the Sketchers for the usual Sunday appointment. I still sketched part of the back garden the day before, because the beautiful day practically forced me to do so: the light was too good to be ignored.... Continue Reading →

At the Powerscourt Centre

On Sunday 22nd April, I went, together with the Sketchers, at the Powerscourt Centre at William St in Dublin. I had to do the whole sketch standing (since the last time, they removed all the benches!), and it's not very comfortable to use a 13-inch iPad that way, but in the end I managed to...
