Although my adventures in France ended a few months ago, I would like to start off my sketchblog by sharing some of what I did on my study abroad trip to Provence. I stayed there for two months and spent much of my time developing an original artists book for my book illustration class. Here's a synopsis of the book:
I wanted the inside cover spread to be really stunning, and it ended up becoming my favorite piece that I've done so far! It was also featured in the curated art show Open Studio Lacoste.
Art wasn't the only thing I did with my time- I also saw some amazing sights! I have far too many pictures to go into detail, so here are some of my top favorites.
Lacoste (where I stayed)
St. Remy (where Van Gogh stayed and painted when he turned himself in to an asylum.)
Pont du Gard
Ancient Ruins of Glanum
The Catacombs of Paris
