Dublin in Sketches and Stories: Lovely sketches, tips on technique, personal stories, observations, views of Dublin. Much more than a book about urban sketching, this delightful book is a warm and chatty coffee table book about the artist’s observations, experiences, interactions, and hidden treasures encountered when out and about in Dublin. It’s a pen and ink, personalized tour book of an historic and vibrant city, with sketching tips throughout . I want to pack my sketching kit and get on a plane to see and sketch these sites, now that I’ve read this gem!

Dublin in Sketches and Stories: Captures Dublin beautifully This book was an impulse buy in a physical bookstore, I love the sketches and bought it largely for that reason. However it is more than beautiful sketching, the stories and seasonal approach are a really lovely way of capturing Dublin. The book lead me to Roisins fantastic online urban sketching classes and an obsession was born.

Dublin in Sketches and Stories: Beautiful sketches and fascinating facts. Beautiful book, I loved the one of Galway and I had been looking forward to the Dublin one. It’s like a super, alternate travel guide. Fantastic sketches and touching stories. (The books make great presents and have been loved by the people I sent them to).

Dublin in Sketches and Stories: It’s a Wonderful Book Róisín Curé’s way of combining a storytelling along with her art, give a flavour to this that is uniquely Irish, full of warmth and gentle wit.It’s not a tourist guide of Dublin, it’s one woman’s homage to that city, and as I read through this it was her voice I heard, even to the way she speaks about ‘the brother’.If you want to find Eire through someone’s eyes and stories then this and her book on Galway are for you.

    About Roisin

    Hello! I’m Róisín Curé, from Galway, on the west coast of Ireland. Back in 2012 I discovered urban sketching, and since then a whirlwind of colour and line has swept through my life. I am so grateful for the happy accident that led me to stumble on urban sketching, and my life is infinitely richer as a result.

    Now, as well as organising urban sketching workshops within Europe, I am a freelance urban sketcher. I currently carry out all kinds of sketching assignments, as varied as you can imagine, from festivals and weddings to all manner of businesses. I also teach children all about watercolour and drawing ( I have a quiverful of mini-urban sketchers ready and willing to pin down their lives in art!) and I run my local urban sketching chapter, Urban Sketchers Galway, with pride. We meet about once a fortnight, sometimes more, and we really enjoy the simple act of sketching together around the city.

    I teach all kinds of topics, and I love to sketch all kinds of subjects. Above all I am passionate about others taking up their sketchbooks and joining in, in this absorbing and wonderfully satisfying activity.
