The parliament at HaTikva Market

HaTikva Market, a small market in the poor south Tel Aviv HaTikva neighborhood, actually is a perfect place for sketching! It's much more calm, wide, clean and authentic than his famous brother - HaCarmel. There are a lot of atmosphere, nobody interested in what you're doing - it filled mostly by locals, and they are busy by doing their shopping and nothing else.
At one of the corners of the market there is a great place for getting kubbe soup. People that are sitting around a table and chatting look like  an everyday comers - kind of a local "parliament".


Looks like we found our next Sketchcrawl location!

Saturday on the beach

Summer is here in all its power and, of course, it's pretty hot. So, if you can't beat them - join them! The best way to enjoy the weather is to be on the beach, to feel the breeze, to have a drink, to enter to the fresh water and... to sketch, of course - beach is always full of perfect models!

All colors of rainbow - sketching at the Pride Parade.

I checked very well that I have a sufficient range of colors in my pencil case before I left to our last sketchcrawl - we decided to go and sketch at the Tel Aviv Pride Parade! I wasn't sure that I'll be able to concentrate, it was possible that this colorful human mess would sweep me away and wouldn't allow me to be in the position of the observer. It took me a while until I pulled off my sketchbook, but once I did, I couldn't stop!
The atmosphere was great, finally nobody cared about the group of people sketching what's going on - anyone around us were more peculiar and strange than we were, and set of colored pencils hanged on my neck looked like a small pride flag.
















It was really awesome experience, now I need to wait a whole year until the next time!
