Update from Casey

I couldn’t resist sharing what I’ve been working on.  I seem to have developed this compulsion over a year and a half of blogging!  As I posted these pictures on my other blogs, I thought I might as well put them up here too.

My theme is local color, so on Sunday morning I went around town with a camera and took loads of random photos.  Based on those, I did a few sketches on my first two pages.  I found myself being drawn to people rather than things or architecture.

Here are those pages – and yes, those are those are my feet, too!

And some ink experiments that I was hoping to use for the cover, but they probably won’t get used, because I paid no attention to the grain of the paper. I can hear Dominique sighing from here….

I'm an American who's been living in France since 1985. Married to Michel (who's French) and Mom to Claire, Damien and Paul. For a long time I did the work of a 'professional American in France' eg translation, interpretation, English teaching....and spent a lot of time and energy refurbishing an old house in the Loire Valley. Now I'm trying to put more energy into drawing and painting.

  1. Well said, Lindsay!

    I’m in love with that last view through the gate, Casey. Magical colours. And I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest for close up appreciation.

  2. Well, I used the middle one for my cover but it did dry a bit wonky because of the grain being in the wrong direction. It’s under a large pile of books now, and I guess it’ll soften up a bit while traveling around the world.
