Christ Church Cathedral and the Synod Hall, Dublin

This was such a beautiful site. The cathedral itself, which is off to the right, and the Synod Hall, which is actually an add-on from the late 1800’s, I believe. It was formerly a church, and was built around the tower which is much older. It now houses a permanent display on Medieval and Viking Dublin, called Dublinia. 
The actual picture isn’t quite so whitish…the scanner really reflected off of the pastel which, in reality is a lot more muted. It get’s the point across anyways, I think. It was raining…Hard! But, in typical Ireland fashion, it cleared up in about ten minutes and I was on my way. Here in Bella Coola, if it starts raining, it doesn’t usually stop for two or three days (or weeks!)

  1. I am thoroughly enjoying your travel sketchbook pages and especially your compositions. It will be a wonderful sketchbook for you to capture memories from trips before you started keeping a visual journal while traveling. I think I need to try to work from photos again and try to start a journal like this from many trips with only a written travel journal.


  2. You did a great job on this complex building. The lettering you chose for the heading adds a lot to the page, and the people walking towards the church is a nice touch too.


  3. What a fantastic drawing, now I am off to buy another moleskin to make my own travel sketchbook, you have inspired me. I just checked out your last few pages from the sketchbook project, they are great and I love that your kids added their own sketches, they are great, I don't know how you could have sent it off though. Its so personal
