Culture Night at the United Arts Club in Dublin


I'm one of five or six artists who will be doing fairly quick portrait drawings this Friday as part of the United Arts Club's Dublin Culture Night Celebration!
My pal Brian Gallagher will also be on duty for this Arts Club fundraiser.
We'll be doing doing portrait sketches with each sitting lasting about twenty five minutes. I'll be drawing with wax and chalk on gray Ingres paper, a wee bit like the picture above. I think each drawing will cost the sitter about 20 euro.

Here is the club's blurb about the event:
The historic United Arts Club, founded in 1907 as a centre for people interested in the Arts is opening its doors this Friday night.
Take this opportunity to tour the building and view our current art exhibition (from 5pm-11pm)

Dear PJ,

This looks absolutely lovely! The more so because I've always loved portraiture without color...it makes the texture of the work stand out all on its own.

I'm going to be partaking in culture night (how could I not!) and hopefully I will see you there!

Beautiful beautiful drawing.

Thanks for those kind comments guys.
Aladine, I look forward to meeting you tonight if you make it to the Arts Club.
Seems like our drawings might cost as little as 20 euro which seems like a bit of a bargain to me. We'll be downstairs in the drawing room.
I'll try to remember to bring my camera Eva.
Regards PJ

Another portrait would of course be a delight! And I'll keep my eye out for any events I can make it to in Dublin.

Thanks for the appreciation of the wings!
