Sketching around: Icons – Lurgan, Northern Ireland

I’m in Northern Ireland from a week and unluckily the weather has been bad: it rained almost every day and we went out not so much.

Luckily here there are a lot of bars in which you can go even for an entire afternoon, reading and chatting, asking for a coffee or for something to eat and…drawing 😉

In Lurgan, where I stay for the most of the time when i’m here, there’s a place I really like: it’s a little and cozy Coffee House, where you can sip something while sitting on the comfortable sofas or at the tables. Its name is Icons and yesterday I passed there a bit of time to draw the inside, while Stevie was reading and relaxing 🙂

I had a sandwich with roasted chicken, mozzarella, red onion and horseradish mayo with a side of chips:

Anyway the sandwich was very appetizing, but nothing compared to the handmade caramel and milk chocolate bun we took with the coffe: Stevie was moved by how good it was! 😉
