It was a lovely break, three days in Dublin with Steve, and then seven more in Galway with friends. I really enjoyed drawing in my sketchbook; black and white gesso, splashy watercolours and pencil and pen marks. It wasn't too wet but felt quite chilly at times, so I got comfy drawing in cafes and pubs drinking red lemonade and virgin irish coffees. I had cake for lunch every day (often cake instead of lunch) so I have returned chubby and happy ready for Autumn!
I've booked a short holiday in Finland at the end of the month, just me and my sketchbook. I'll be staying in Helsinki but I'm keen to do some day trips - if anyone had any advice of things to see and places to draw I'd love to hear them!
For now, it's soooo nice to be back in the studio, I've really missed it and there's lots of new and ongoing projects to get on with this week including an exciting meeting with a new client. I must crack on, but I'll return later in the week to show you my new letterpressed postcard x
