Israel on screen (part 2) – Jaffa by the Sea

December 27, 2013

For number two in this digital series, I have chosen Jaffa. As my regular readers will know, I love using Jaffa (particularly the old city) as my canvas, and it never gets boring (well, for me anyway). Around every corner is a different view, and for this piece, I’ve chosen one looking out to sea.

The contrast between the bright blue sea and the pastel beige stone is something I’ve come to associate with the ancient cities in Israel, whether it’s Jerusalem, Jaffa, Caesarea or Akko.  And these places, for me, truly represent the Holy Land.
