Summer in the middle of January

Summer is back!   🌞   Sitting on the beach and sinking into surrounding.

Rainy afternoon at the Fleamarket

Even at a rainy day there are plenty "models" for a hungry sketcher at the Jaffa Fleamarket :)

New Year in Haifa

My husband was born in Uruguay, were New Year is celebrated as well. So this year we decided to find a place in Israel were we can feel the change of the year's number and went to...

Leftovers from the last year

Here is passed another year, busy as usual and full of sketching. I didn't update my blog as frequent as I would like, but I did keep on sketching almost everyday, as always.

Sometimes I feel that there is nothing new in another sketch of couple in the coffee shop or family on the beach. But I can't help myself not doing it, it's a part of me, looking for the small stories and recording them inside my sketchbook. And sharing them with you :) Here are some sketches from the last two month. I hope I'll upload more this year. And I'm sure I'll keep on sketching. Have a  great year full of visual stories!
