Fireplace Angel

November 17, 2007

On Thursday, Laura and I tried to go sketching in Tours, but it was just so cold and windy that we quickly ruled out outdoor sketching. After traipsing all over the city, we instead had a good lunch (and some wine from Vouvray – just across the river) and finally ended up in the art museum., As art museums go, it’s pretty limited, and so in the end we only found one thing to draw – these beautiful painted figures on the fireplace in one of the rooms. And then it was time to hurry back to Amboise. So, not a very productive drawing day, but it was fun.

    you got one done at least 😀 great sketches and these are the first set of “happy/sad” gargoyles that i’ve seen. Nice to know that there are some other than the scary kinds around.

    May not have been very productive in terms of quantity, but in quality I think it was highly successful. The line work on this piece is just lovely.

    Yeah, I’m with Juj. Linework AND color are great.

    What a good idea going to the museum with a friend to draw and what a striking drawing you produced too!

    Casey, these have been such fun to look at! And I love the colouring that goes along with the sketches….such vibrancy! So when is our next sketch crawl? LOL
