Sketches

December 15, 2007

I’m pretty proud of this first sketch, as I did it in the dark while watching a comedian perform. I couldn’t even seee my paper, and was really surprised when I looked a few days later and it held together as a person. (Obviously, I added the color later.) He was terrible, by the way – and yes, he was drinking wine on stage! He tried to work it into the routine, but the jokes about it were so lame that you just knew that the wine came first and the jokes later..

These are just random sketches done while waiting for my son’s plane to land on Thursday, and a head of garlic that was sitting on my kitchen table while I made dinner.

    Oh WOW! Your colors are sooooooo fabulous. And amazing to do a drawing in the dark… I have enough trouble with the lights on.

    Wow! That’s a great sketch for “in the dark” too bad his “art” wasn’t as good as yours! I love the colors that you use in your sketches they blend so nicely and their vibrancy adds life to your sketches.

    I can´t believe you drew that sketch in the dark. Wow!

    Oh, the poor guy looks so uncmfortable. He must know how bad he is. You, on the other hand, are a wonderful sketcher, in the dark and in the light. I love the little rue Manuel vignettes. Of course.

    The garlic is my favorite..I’m hooked on blue and brown and you’ve combined them beautifully.

    Hi Casey,
    I dont really know where to put this comment, I was looking for a “about”page to leave it on but could not find it.
    I got your adress from Ujwala, who thought I would enjoy it and I just love what you do,
    I am visiting nearly everyday and I just love everything, line drawings, watercolours, and also the way you write. Looked at Flikr too.
    I think that seeing in your drawings familiar places magnifies the pleasure. I had family in Tours (Saint Symphorien) and have some in provence. I enjoy also the fact that you are english speaking leaving in France, I am french speaking leaving in Canada, mix of cultures always bring a new perspective, I think
    I will be back
    Bénédicte

    I like the movement in the comedian sketch – at least you got something good out of his performance. I like your garlic sketch too.

    I love the way these look so loose and fresh. The colours are gorgeous too!

    I was looking at this blog and thought you might be interested: http://www.dailydrawingdiary.com/

    He does observational drawings without ever looking at the paper, and all the drawings – even his very first ones done like this, are on the blog so you can see how he’s progresed over the last few years.
