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 →

At the Science Gallery

Yesterday has been the first, real rainy day in Dublin in a couple of months (the grass had turned yellow, like in Milan in the summer, only I had never seen it happen here) I met the Sketchers at the Science Gallery, part of Trinity College. Here I used a mixture of fineliner (0.4 and... Continue Reading →

Burn Baby Burn!

Another unbelievable day in Ireland. An unreal sunny day has accompanied the weekly meeting of the Sketchers, this time in Bray. I sketched a couple of buildings that I particularly liked, and the sun helped to create contrasts that were rather easy to represent, as they were really clear because of the strong light. And...

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 →

Under the (Dart) Bridge

Usual Sunday meeting with the Sketchers, this time in Gardiner Street. I made this sketch in the terrace of a cafe under the Dart bridge: sometimes the traditional sketchbook inspires me even more than my beloved iPad: drawing for me always depends on the mood. And last Sunday I was clearly in a "pen and... 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...
