    Session 2 - Roxanne Steed's "Watercolor Travel Journal Workshop"- Ireland 2018
    August 12-19, 2018

    This is YOUR year! I've been wanting to share the fun of 'going small' and show my friends how easy this can be. Keeping a sketchbook of your impressions and thoughts can capture YOUR memories in ways that photos never will. Even if you haven't drawn since grade-school – Roxanne can teach you. The scenery in this area of Ireland is a painter's dream! From thatched roof cottages, rugged coastlines, fishing villages, colorful boats, beautiful wildflowers, rolling farmland with cows and sheep grazing, to an amazing island off shore, Skellig Michael (yes, the place where the most recent Star Wars movie did some filming!). Where people know how to make a proper pot of tea, and pour a good Guinness, and make some mighty fine chocolate, too; this region of Kerry is filled with inspiring things to see and do. Some of the things you'll learn during this workshop:

    • atmospheric perspective in the landscape
    • developing your own personal style
    • building strong compositions
    • using photographs and/or painting from life
    • daily lectures and demos
    • lots of one-on-one instruction
    • something for every level
