St Patrick's Day


This guy is wearing green, one of my favored solo drinkers. He had the most remarkable beard and came in for a beer and a shot at about 2pm and then left. Self medication.

NIce pose! I'm not wearing green, but might pop out for some St. Patrick's day cheer later on. The Americans (or the Irish in America always do St Paddy's day so well. I miss the Irish pubs in the USA (lol) I had to read your post again as I was wondering what you were doing up so late sketching!!!

Steven, absolutely love your pub sketches! And love the fact that you're actually sketching in the pub. That's the way to do it.

I love the way you captured his portliness and happy St. Patricks day!

Still enjoying your work, it has become part of my daily ritual to drop by and see what you have done. Not done anything for ages, time to get off the balcony and onto the dancefloor and dance like my dad!

And a belated Happy St Patrick's day to you all. Oddly it's the one day I will not go out to a pub since crowded bars are not my thing.

Great rendering! You captured his mood and his girth!

Stephen, do you self medicate whilst drawing? If so, that's really impressive. If you don't then that too is impressive - sitting in a bar watching everybody else drink.
Once I have a drink drawing goes out of the window.

Your work totally and completely blows me away. Could have commented on every single one of your posts. I'm just too drunk!!
