So you won’t say I am not going out of my way to bring culture to right your doorstep, I went to a contemporary music concert yesterday, where the dress-code is classical, but the music is a-tonal.
Was great meeting friends, was great drawing, was great listening!

Voila:

One cello (is the loneliest number)
two harps

A visit at home can be a challenging experience, so here are some clicks I did with the sketchpad…

My wife’s kibutz entry looks heart throbbing from inside the car at 6 AM
When it is so so hot, the pool and the sea are the only option outside of the air-conditioned bubble.
The continuous struggle I have with colors continues

And continues

While black and white in a non hostile environment makes me feel safer
Colors allow understanding swimming is not allowed.

The things I am craving for when Israel are art and music from the place that molded me, I went to a museum, but O.D’d and couldn’t draw anything. Music, however, indeed came my way (followed by a three hour gift of a meeting 🙂

The show was by Hemi Rudner backed by Almog Mudai, and the impressions are below.

Life is good, no complaints.

Can’t draw small when sitting close, so diagonally is the only option

Nomi Shemer, tell me sweet sweet lies…
Blues (and some green)

See you around.

In the continuous trend to draw other people’s stuff (how about poets writing other people poems??) here are some Matisse painting water-painting, and Dega sketches.

Till nextime!

 

In the continuous effort to learn the language of color, a color post!


Sometimes I like to go to the museum and draw.
This time impressions from a Matisse expo of themes and variations,


Plus some ten Liz Taylors by warhol, and a Jean-Dubuffet cave.
Enjoy.

Me.

Had another peek last week at the current world of Shir, who tought me how to draw and look. (see a link on the right..) and tried to refresh some aproaches.
Some more trees today, and a second shot at last week’s music themes as well. (with a slightly different guitar)

And, it’s a great honor to have two guests this time, who are good friends of each other that didn’t meet in a long while.

And now for the guest corner…

The first guest is drawn just above (while I am chasing him up the stairs)…
I usualy don’t read titles, but this one surely earned its title…
The eye of Ganesh
The other guest is right below, and has the sheer energy of 6 year old.
A small note of warning – you might want to have volume control handy 🙂

Till nextime!
