When I was in Maryland a couple weeks ago , my grandson and I went into the country side on Sunday morning  when we came upon a Mennonite church , the young girls where  outside waiting for their ride , the boys were on the other side , I took this photo in my rear view mirror , I was a little afraid to do it ,but it was a picture moment  ! I don't often do figures but i just wanted to do it in a very loose style .

Le Chateau de Fontainebleau

 Chateau de Fontainebleau
Watercolor 6x8 (c) 2011 by Nita Leger Casey
When I was a young , This castle was one of my favorite to visit with my family , at the time not so much for the castle itself but the gardens and the fish ponds , they used to have the biggest red fish in it , I only lived about an hour from it ,so it was a Sunday ride or a school field trip , the inside is just beautiful! I took this photo a few years ago ,Tim and I had lunch right across the street from it .If you go to France ,this is a good one to visit , this was my choice to paint today at the studio in a very rainy day .Email me  nlcasey@charter.net if you are interested in this watercolor .
