I haven't got a huge amount of time today, so I'm going to use few words and lots of pictures, quite possibly a first for this blog!
Saturday was Dr. Sketchy day.
The theme for this month was 'Back to the Future,' and our hosts didn't let us down with the effort they put in-

But regardless of my personal artistic misgivings, it is one heck of a fun evening and I really wish we could do it more often than just once a month!
On to Sunday, which was all about Urban Sketchers Galway.
Our ever-changing group met up at a little town just a couple of clicks from the main part of Galway city, called Salthill. Resting on the water's edge, Salthill is pretty much your bog standard seaside town. There's a walking path along the water, plenty of tourist attractions and, as a consequence, lots of tourists.

All of that moping aside, I had a great time with friends old and new while drawing away. 99% of the time, my art is produced in solitude, so it is a real blessing and a thrill to be able to be creative and have fun with friends at the same time. It's a novelty that can't possibly ever wear out.
You can see and read my buddy Róisín Curé's far superior write-up of the event over here.
And that's it. So much for being less wordy than usual...
I'll be back with what I hope will be a couple of joyous announcements very soon.
Catch you then!
