We spent the day yesterday at Be’er Sheva, a city on the edge of the Negev Desert. I had a good day sketching as I made my way about the city, but it was not until I sat in the shade to rest a bit that I got a sketch that says, “Be’er Sheva” to me. I found the people low key and down-to-earth. A lovely, diverse group of people, going about their day, cheerful and enjoying the moment, much like these children.
I sketched the original version of this in black marker and watercolor. This morning I imported it into Procreate on my iPad where I lightened the marker lines, added the white lines and made other adjustments to color and white space.
