The afternoon I spent at Chateau Laréole, I arrived looking outward, exploring the world. But the day was perfect, the light brilliant, and I was satisfied to sketch and draw the dusty pink strips of this distinguished building. Balzac’s opening paragraph describes beautifully how I was drawn in, forgetting time and everything but the lines and color in front of me. Edition of 18.
The work of CB Sherlock allows us to experience her three loves: the grandeur of “Nature,” Wordcraft, and the endlessly variable structure of the book. She shows us nature in elegantly simple graphic images, using repetition of shape, and beautiful palate. She gives a glimpse into a love affair.
