It’s been nearly 3 months since my last foray into the life room and it was so good to shake off the temptation to sink into winter hibernation on this miserable grey January Saturday. Below are a few sketches from the 4 hour session…..

The summer already seems like a lifetime ago but before the Autumn draws in completely here is a little reminder of the August sketching holiday in Donegal.
I don’t think I could get away with saying the weather was brilliant (the photos of raincoats and warm jackets are a testament to that) but we certainly weren’t washed out and Donegal is beautiful and inspirational no matter what.
Our locations this year were Killybegs Harbour, Fintra Beach, Port, Muckross and an “invigorating” sea outing with Sliabh Liag Boat Trips.
