Brenda has been conducting Travel Sketching holidays abroad for several years, and is now bringing her simple “Three Step Process” through demonstrations and individual guidance in an Irish residential art workshop location – in the seaside village of Dunmore East, home of Artform School of Art .

Course concept

In this weekend workshop, Brenda will introduce you to the simple and enjoyable practise of sketching. You will learn how to quickly capture scenes in ink and watercolour as we explore the scenic village, harbour and coastline of Dunmore East.

In our two day workshop we will cover some essential skills for sketching on location, at home or on your travels:

  • Selecting the right materials for ease and convenience
  • Choosing your subject and your best viewpoint – where to start, what to fit in, how to proceed
  • Composition – some basic considerations
  • A simple approach to perspective and achieving a sense of space and depth in your sketch
  • Pen and ink – making marks that dance on the page
  • Watercolour – keeping it fresh, loose and spontaneous
  • Colour mixing and tonal values
  • Developing your personal style – your sketch is like your signature, a unique expression of you
