Dublin Sketchers meet up- Iveagh Gardens

So this is my drawing of one of the angel fountains in the Iveagh Gardens. Such a beautiful place to draw, definitely going back soon, maybe with a stool and some sandwiches. 

  It was challenging and took me the whole time period to do but I quite like it ^_^ I especially wanted to concentrate on the folds of the fabric and shading. Maybe the detail that I tried to attain defies the definition of "sketching", but I find it near impossible to be loose like other artists; a trait of myself I find a little discouraging.
 I used different shades of artists pencils.

I really enjoyed getting back out with the dublin sketchers group and hope to go to more regular meets!
