It’s a weird one, but the flowers are still blooming and there’s still hope in the world. Try to stay happy and healthy, even if it means staying away from your family this holiday (as I am).
Here’s the drawing before I applied watercolour to it. Feel free to print it out for your personal use, and colour it yourself.
A quick sketch on location of the Eurovision 2019 Tel Aviv Euro Village as it was filling up.

Decided to stick to a limited palette on this one. Zebra and Faber Castell brush pens on paper bag, drawn during an Urban Sketchers sketch walk.

I drew this on a small paper bag with Koh-I-Noor Tri Tone coloured pencils set. Scenes from the Tel Aviv Port market, drawn during an Urban Sketchers sketch walk.
It looks like another year without winter here. I drew this during an Urban Sketchers sketch crawl, but since the sun was right in my face and it was blazing hot (31 degrees centigrade), I didn’t place the shadows properly.

Just back from a trip to London and York, and still sorting through photos and experiences. This is a quick sketch I made over coffee on Sunday morning in Seven Dials, Covent Garden.
Quick (yet challenging) morning sketch on the bus to work.
Urban Sketchers Tel Aviv met up outside Beit Chana, a local community centre, for a special Swing and Draw event. Around 20 dancers danced to Swing music out of old records played on two turntables while around 30 of us Urban Sketchers drew them. It was a lovely event and I thoroughly enjoyed myself (I managed to reach my one week 100 people challenge goal during the two and a half hours I was there). I had to leave early due to family obligations but I was so glad that I participated anyway.
Things took a while to get going so I drew some fellow Urban Sketchers as I waited:
Used the Sanford no-blot for the first time here:
Then moved to an 0.3 Staedler pigment liner and a fine Kuretake brush pen:
A lot more couples had joined in at this point and they were moving fast.
I turned to quick gesture drawing to get the most out of the event. Moved to a Faber-Castell blue brush pen for a bit of a change:
Finally broke out a Faber-Castell purple coloured pencil for the last few gestures:
Here’s a little video of the super talented dancers to give you a bit of a sense of things:
All in all a fun event and great drawing opportunity.
