We were in Dublin this weekend, getting our son settled in for his school year and seeing our daughter, who’s been back at school for a month now. It was hectic, but I had a few minutes for sketching here and there.
Here are a couple from the campus of Trinity College, the first is the roof af a sort of kiosk, which no one I asked knew the name of – including my son , who’s now a third year student there. He does know that you shouldn’t stand under it before an exam though – if you want a good grade that is.
From the very same vantage point I could see a statue of someone named Lecky – again no help with who he is from my Trinity student son. This drawing doesn’t look much like him anyway!
We spent a lot of time taking breaks at Starbucks, since we don’t have any here where we live, here’s a sketch from one of them:
We had lunch on Sunday in a really nice wine bar, where we met some wonderful Italian people – here’s another patron there and the flower on the table :
An attempt to portray the inside of another cool pub, a converted church (I know, there are lots of drinking establishments here, but this is Dublin after all!)
And finally, some gardeners working hard in St Stephens Green
