Israel on screen (part 5) – Jaffa Steps

February 7, 2014

The next installment of digital art takes us back to Jaffa. The steps lead up to Kedumim Square, the centre of Jaffa’s tourism, and (at the risk of sounding like a tour guide) where you can find the beautiful St Peter’s Church, built around 350 years ago.

I’m really loving the graphic, cartoon-y quality of these pieces, and have printed a few for display. They are colourful and fun, and really brighten up a space. It’s a very different style to work with than paint or pastel, but the base is still my hand at work (the black and white version being done in ink).

And I love that it can work with basically anything. I’ve focused on landscapes of my surroundings, as that’s what inspires me, but I’m thinking about trying a portrait in this style…. Watch this space….
