You think of Temple Bar, and you see crowds, people taking selfies, drinking on the street, Irish music on a loop, fresh puke on the pavement. And that's at 2pm on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Not the best place to be sketching! But we had access to a private terrace at the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and I got there early (mais oui) and got the best spot, standing at the balustrade. I sketched with a fountain pen and an Ecoline marker, and when I got tired of standing, I sat down on my little stool and added watercolour. I had to stand up every so often to check the actual colours. I think the best part of the sketch is the chimneys, they look like cherry trees dancing in the mind, don't they?
Lots of new sketchers turned up. Maybe we'll see them again some time!
