Lignes & Couleurs, Dessiner Le Paysage - Meet Juliette Plisson


Meet my watercolor friend and artist, JULIETTE PLISSON .

We met in Clermont Ferrand at one of those Carnet de Voyage exhibitions.
Juliette is queen of 
leporello sketchbooks among so many other things.
She makes her own leporellos with great speed! You can buy a Leporello blank or filled from Juliette.
I love ❤️ her Venice St. Marco accordion book. Juliette has such a loose and free style.
Juliette has a M.O.F. in scarf-tying
I’ve constantly request demos but have yet to master the art…

Juliette’s background training was as an architect, which means she can draw or paint anything in any medium. Does Juliette ❤️ Love red?
Like buildings, landscapes,
And figures.
If there is a carnet de Voyage event or artistes Salon going on, be it Montreil or Venice, Juliette will be there.
Her next carnet event will be in Orleans next Saturday.
And then in Dinard in Brittany end of the month. I want to go to both.
And a 2-day stage/workshop in Paris 18/19 Avril,2023
Most mornings you can find Juliette sketching and drinking coffee☕️  in some Paris cafe…
I invited Juliette for coffee to Berthillon, where we sketched like mad.
Juliette’s favorite pens - a Lamy Global and her special mystery pen.
I love visiting Juliette’s studio
It’s a tad chaotic like mine…
Publisher Eyrolles loved Juliette’s work and asked her to create a how-to book 📕 Voila 
Lignes et couleurs, dessiner le paysage: Excursions de la mer à la ville.
It’s brilliant 👍
Especially if you can’t draw buildings 
And seascapes 
And want to know how color works. 
And it will be coming out in English ! 🤸🏾‍♀️👏😊 I will def let you know when that is!
I hope you enjoyed meeting Juliette. Her website is here.
And her Instagram. And facebook. Bon Friday PBers ❤️✏️🐻

      Carol, I can never thank you enough for putting me in touch with Juliette when I was in Paris before Covid. Sitting with her in those cafes, her students drawing each other and our croissants and painting the surrounding buildings...heaven. Juliette, you are a lovely person and an exceptional artist! Hope to see you when next I visit Paris.

      All you architects can draw ✏️ the pants off everyone else

  4. The last photo is composed so simply. I am transported to a special place.

      Juliette’s courtyard IS special !!

  5. Carol & Juliette…two such talented artists. They say birds of a feather flock together. I hope you will be able to attend her next couple of events. Have you ever tried to create an accordion book?🗼❤️

      Not yet but maybe now I’ll try it out. Inspired 👍

    Such a lovely portrait, Carol, of a lovely and talented artist. You both make me envious of your artistic talent. I look forward to the release of Juliette’s book in English. ❤️

      I bet you could draw. Everyone can…Left Side of the Brain book 📕

  7. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to an artist whose work I think I will just love. Ithink I've clicked on every link you included and plan to devour them all. I can see why you've become good friends and kindred spirits. The Carnet sounds wonderful and oh, what joy it would be to attend! I want details (especially on the English edition of Juliet's book!)

    1. Anonymous9:33 AM

      I can’t wait for the English edition !!

    This post is a delight to the eyes.

  9. I love seeing other people’s sketchbooks and studio spaces. When you show your space I look it over carefully for ideas that I’d like to use. I’m constantly changing up my creative corner in my condo! One day I want to go to a sketchbook show. I’m in Vancouver Canada and I’ve never heard of them having one. One day in Paris I might see you at one!

      How interesting Glynis!
      Look for UrbanSketchers Vancouver.
      They are Everywhere and have lots of get togethers. They do sketch walks every weekend. Anyone can join and its free. I found plenty of them on Google at Facebook & Meetup etc. Go for it ✏️

    Oh WOW, Carol!!
    Thanks for sharing your friend with us. What a “class” you belong to, the GRAND WATER COLOR ARTISTS!! WONDERFUL! WHAT GRACE YOU SHARE WITH US. CARLA

  11. I love both of your works, similar yet different. Watercolor has always been a favorite medium of mine and if I had any artistic talent, it would have been my medium. Juliette appears to be a delightful person - always smiling and looking like she is enjoying herself.

    love love this post--thank you carole and do let us know about the book in english and the carnets you do attend, wherever they may be; love the info.

    Really wonderful. I envy you both for your artistic talent. Whenever I’ve tried to draw, it looked like I stuck the pen between my toes. No skill whatsoever.

    1. Anonymous8:04 PM

      Anyone can learn to draw ✏️. There are simple techniques now. Don’t put yourself down 😊

  14. Anonymous8:10 PM

    In my next life I will be an architect, with I side for creative art. This is such a lovely post. Thanks!

    1. Anonymous2:41 AM

      ME TOO 👍
      Architects have Great Drawing ✏️ skills !!! I’m very jealous…
      Of course being ADHD I probably never would have made the grade. Architecture is all about PLANNING AHEAD 😵‍💫

  15. I love her work because of you..a while ago you spoke of her..She is lovely..Love her atelier..her work..I'll go watch the video and check out her book..I agree architects and graphic artists have fabulous drawing skills ..I think of Shari..Marc..Liz etc.. A nice friendship you two artists have:)

    Carol, what a great issue of "Paris Breakfast" -
    I learned about Julliette Plisson's work, about Carnet de Voyage and the leporello sketchbook.
    Thank you! Dee Ann


Love hearing from you
