Jaffa Street, again

Jaffa Street, Again

Jaffa Street, Again

This afternoon I drew the Jaffa Street scene again for my last sketch in Jerusalem. Israel is full of captivating sites for sketching and Jaffa Street became one of my favorites. Its lively dynamic is perfect for catching people on the move and the street itself makes a wonderful background.

The challenge of a street scene is showing people in motion so I used light gestural lines and avoided details. I tried to endow the same liveness in the buildings and trees by placing the windows a little off kilter.

This is a pen and watercolor sketch.
