Monkstown Church

Trust me for sketching in the one place that's not mentioned in Ulysses. I just love the churches in Monkstown, though! Fantastic location for urban sketching, lots of space, interesting buildings, easy access with buses and the Dart, and proximity to the sea.

My mind goes jumping around. Here is how I got to bread and butter:
  1. Monkstown
  2. Carrickbrennan
  3. Brennan's bread
  4. bread and butter
I did the initial sketch, the tower, in 8 minutes - that was how much time I had between parking the car and my appointment. I took a photo and did the main building and the wash effect afterwards. Some artists I follow would do the whole thing in 8 minutes, but I'm not there yet!
