Crozon Revisited

August 24, 2007

We’ve been under a dark gray cloud for a while here – with really cold temperatures.  It’s been hard to imagine that it’s really August.  This morning I see a glimmer of blue sky, and even a bit of very weak sun. I haven’t felt much like painting the last few days, but I have been working on my watercolor class.  Unfortunately, nothing I’ve done is ‘postable’ but I ran across this watercolor sketch done a few weeks ago in Brittany – where the weather may be unstable, but at least the sun comes out once in a while.  This is just a quick impression – now I’m trying to learn the techniques to do this sort of thing correctly.

I hope the sun comes out today wherever you are!

    Love the looseness and the richness of the colors. It’s all very exciting.

    Well I like impressions…

    We’ve been sharing your grey cloud in the UK – terrible floods, deaths – it’s awful. And cold. But today I did see a spot of blue in the sky so maybe…

    I love the way this shimmers.

    The colors are so rich and wonderful! This is my only bit of sunshine here in Wisconsin today. Thanks!

    I would trade you a sunny day for one of your grey ones. I’m ready for cool weather. The colors glimmer in this sketch, I hoped it brightened your day a bit. thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my sketches. I am also ‘moved’ when I attempt to draw my little ones… hoping I’ve not only rendered a likeness, but maintained their dignity in doing so.

    Sorry about the funky weather everywhere else. We’ve had the most perfect summer weather I can ever remember in the SF Bay Area this year. I feel so sad seeing all the weather-induced tragedies everywhere else. At least your watercolor is cheery and bright and exciting.

    Casey, don’t let doing it ‘correctly’ spoil your lovely natural style with watercolour. I find this beautiful with it’s value shapes and sparkling colours. I do envy you lessons though.

    And again I’m feeling the environment and all the beauties I’ve seen last year.

    Although we’ve grumbled about the cool cloudy weather we’ve been having in the Pacific Northwest of the US, I wouldn’t trade it for what much of the world is experiencing this summer.

    This is lovely, Casey. I really like your dreamily flowing colorful paintings.

    This one is breathtaking. What a great “coup de pinceau”. I am really proud of your talent. Let’s frame this one, please!

    Believe it or not, I’d trade places with you! It’s been the hottest, driest summer on record here. Feels like hell, literally. Love your juicy and colorful sketch.

    i think this is brilliant casey, love the water approaching shore and the topography

    This is correct enough for me! I love it. I wish I could paint something this impressionistic, but I get too fiddly with outdoor paintings.
