My Trip to Turkey – Part 2

April 28, 2010

Here are some more quick impressions jotted down during my recent trip to Turkey.

A bit of the library at Ephesus:

A couple of views from our hotel in Sirince

and some sketches from a café in the same town:

Tomorrow I’ll post some sketches done in Istanbul, but in the mean time, I’ve just posted an oil done from photos on 100 Landscapes, and I’ll reproduce it here.  This was in an olive grove in which there was an old temple of Zeus.  There was almost no one there when we made an unplanned stop – it was the most magical place…

    Oh, these make me homesick—or tripsick, I guess is more accurate! I love, love, love the roofscape—and the women, but the color in the original is much more daring, more Fauvist, isn’t it? And I also love your oil of Euromos—funnily enough, for me that afternoon was all about cool colors. You’ve made the scene so warm, yellow and pink where I would have done silver, blue, gray. It is SO fun to see your approach to these things!

    Casey – I always enjoy your travel sketches so much. My favourite here is the two ladies having a chat. Great characters.

    Your olive grove oil painting is just beautiful. You’ve captured the silver highlights of the olive leaves perfectly. Brava, brava.

    WOW — Robyn is right -your silvery leaves ARE magical Casey! love the amazing colors in the whole painting!!
    So fun to see all the travel sketches too. Looks like a marvelous trip!!!
    I like your idea of a blog based on poetry– would be very cool! of course, after the 100 landscapes!

    The silvery olive grove is indeed magical! Enchanting!

    Love the sketches also, they are very lively – wish I was there🙂 ! I will be traveling to far parts of the world in a couple of weeks and hope to make a visual travel narrative. Studying yours gives me great ideas – thank you!

    Casey, these are gorgeous. I always enjoy your watercolors, and that oil painting is to die for–you are really good with oils!

    The sketches are priceless! I enjoyed each one more than the one before it, just a delight to scroll through. And the big tree painting–Wow! How big is it? I’m going to start working bigger now too.

    Your sketches are so nice. They remind me of Dufy.
