Festival Big Day Out

Had a great time with Dublin Sketchers at the St Patrick Festival Big Day Out last week. A family day for kids of all ages.

I was particularly taken by the Upon a Tree setup and I enjoyed painting all the bright colours and wishing roses! And they must have been wishing for good weather - I was able to sketch outdoors for the afternoon. 

It did get a little cold after a while, though. That was perfect time for a hot chocolate - and another sketch - next time I must plan a little better and not end up with someone's face in the middle of the spread!

After all that sketching, it was on to the National Gallery for a natter with fellow-sketchers. And a quick look at Graham Norton's portrait!
