It’s been a while…

October 17, 2013

I’ve been working on a number of larger projects which have been keeping me very busy, hence the absence for a few weeks. However I had a few hours between things this week, so took out my sketchbook whilst having a coffee and just drew what was there in front of me.

Habima Square is the cultural centre of Tel Aviv, with Habima Theatre on one side, and Charles Bronstein Auditorium on another. My sketch (above) shows the prominent ‘Hitromemut‘ sculpture by Menashe Kadishman with Sderot Rothschild disappearing in the distance.

At a first look, the square looks quite sparse. But on closer inspection you see a reflection pool, a raised tree and, in the centre, a ‘hidden garden’, lowered into the ground by a couple of steps (which double as benches). A grass area, plants, flowers and a sand pit are included, appealing to both adults and children. The most recent renovations of Habima Square were completed by architect Dani Karavan

Finally this week, I worked on a sketch showing one of my favourite views in the city – from the north end of the beach looking south to Jaffa. I also kept this one simple in block colours, and it’s only meant to give an impression of the beauty.

    Love the sketches. Have enjoyed coffee sitting in the sunshine in the square watching the kids playing and teenagers meeting up in the square. You have caught it just right
