If Impressionism is an attempt to take reality and extract the impression out of it. what does a drawing whose subject is an impressionist masterpieces mean? a double extract? a way to pass the time?
Ah, you know what? forget it…


This time – some drawings from Musée d’Orsay (among others)
And if you missed my recommendation – take a look at this issue of Boo! Baa! Buu! with echos of the Leviathan

Monet – Orangeri​e

Monet – Orangeri​e, using some pens bought in the kiosk.

indeed Don Quixote, Sancho Panza and the Dead Mule
Apparently, Honoré drew tons of them, as you can see (and even buy a poster) here.

I sat down to rest, right below a statue of Icarus, and took my time to draw him in relatively lots of detail, but I still prefer the fast one that came after…

An attempt to catch the mist Monet lays down with pencils.

If you look closely, you will see some visitors reflecting in the protecting glass. (at least I did…)

Bonnard is someone I can’t seem to get enough of… 


The guard was dosing off, so I started drawing and waiting for him to fall asleep. Suddenly he woke up, looked around, and mumbled something about him falling asleep and that he has to go take a walk.
The empty chair remained.

Haifa getting ready for sunset.
Kids play.
Fence
A tangled-up one-liner.
While visiting our Haifa soul-buddies, I seized the chance to draw a 3ptich of their window-view (A homage to a work by the inspiring O. I used to work with),
*As Shir taught me – make your black by mixing complementary colors.
And just one of the Holy J. 
(I wanted soo much to draw the old-city market, but there were only 24H that D.)

They (actually he) say a man is made in the mold of his birthplace, so coming back and seeing the mold changed and so did you, but still you both stayed the same is quite interesting (if you are interested…)

Some shots of my molding-place:

(This time more than 5, and more than 2)

Root-beer for the firstime.
Once upon a time, there was a peace-project, three skyscrapers – a Circle (Islam) a Square (Christianity) and a triangle (Judaism), called towers of peace, but Ego is bigger than idealism – hence today they are Towers of Azrieli.
The cat feeding lady (shhhh, don’t tell anyone)
Cats are fed up.
She said – Didn’t recognize you without the hat, be careful when cars cross

In this picture there hides a huge black statue, can you find it and color it rust?

A street lamp emitting dark rust, used to adore it, and still do.

The capital P.

Fancy some Paris flavor?
Here goes.
(Only one music piece this time, OK?)

just to clear out some ambiguity – A glass roof inside a gallery:
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.

Trees guitar #1

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!
