National Museum (Archeology) Kildare Street

Well, I thought that there wouldn't be too many of us at the National Museum for the last Dublin Sketchers meet of the year, the Sunday before Christmas. But I was wrong. At least 20 sketchers showed up! Which is fantastic. The National Museum has a lot of interesting objects to draw. The only problem is that the light level is very low. So not ideal. Still, it was fun, and I look forward to many interesting outings in 2017!

How do you draw a decapitated torso and arms from a body preserved in a bog?

Inspired by a piece in the Olivier Cornet Gallery, I found the shape of these bronze bells fascinating
