Summer Sketching in Galway – A Week in Paradise
If you like this please +1 it!
“Ireland is paradise when the sun comes out, isn’t it?”
This is what you’ll hear in Ireland again and again when the weather is really kind to us. It’s the truth. The fact that it is so rarely as nice as this means there’s just zero development on the north, west and south coast of Ireland. The Wild Atlantic Way stretches from Donegal in the north to Cork in the south, and at 1700 miles long, it’s the longest signposted coastal route in the world. If you are lucky enough to live along the Wild Atlantic Way, as I am, you will never be far from somewhere beautiful and pretty much deserted. It’s like stepping back in time…
Now that summer is really here, and the mercury has risen, we are all enjoying the warmth and sparkle of the sunshine. I’ve taken my pens and paints with me wherever I’ve gone, and I’ve made the most of summer sketching. I look forward to this kind of sketching all year, so when the sun comes out, I drop everything to go out and scribble, even if I’m working away from home at some point during the day. That’s the beauty of sketching – no planning is required, and it takes very little time in the grand scheme of things.
Here is my week in sketches. I hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoyed being out there.
