she got a little confused and started another drawing...
...this time adding the shadow in a pretty accurate way. Its so interesting to see how their minds work and a lot of the time want to draw what they 'think' it should be and not what they actually see!
Then we changed direction, and i took out these pictures of Geargia O'Keefe to show Yuval.
~ beginning my blog and discovering all of you wonderful, talented, inspiring friends... such amazing connections xxx ~
And then i asked her to do another one - it happens every week and every time she does a second drawing she notices more details - this is wonderful.. I think she did a fantastic drawing with the angle of the spout and the shadow.
Lots of fun!!
Rami and I have been joking recently at how we should be hired as "breakfast reviewers' of the area!! When we lived in Tel Aviv, it was our special thing every friday morning to try out a new place for breakfast...and since we have lived in this area we have moved from one coffee shop to another trying out the different places.
They are not the standard of Tel Aviv, it happens on free mornings - not necessarily on fridays and we now have at least of the girls in tow - making it a completely diffferent experience!
Ok, so its not TA...you cant people watch here and enjoy the different colours of the city but the food is wonderful, the quality is really good, it has a lovely country atmosphere and the coffee is up to standard (apparently)!!
So it seems, this is now our regular haunt for free mornings... wish you could join us :)
(Sorry about the poor photos..i was going to scrap them but they actually capture the place perfectly.)
have a very happy one friends :)
I have been writing my blog since April..not that long...but in this short space of time, i have made some really wonderful friends. One of the frustrating things about blogging is being so far from everyone and not being able to meet...although i will meet some of you one day i do enjoy conversations on Messenger, emails, swaps and of course wonderful comments!! Yesterday i read Gracia's lovely post - it made me think about how we get so much out of the fact that in our blog community we live in such varied countries!!!
We dont celebrate Christmas here but i am so enjoying all of your posts leading up to christmas - lovely handmade decorations, festive foods and thoughts, I almost feel i will be celebrating with you!!! I wish you all a very happy Christmas (and the lead up to it)...egg nog and all!!!!
I found this leaf and the above flower on the way home from picking up Shelly today. The flower looked so beautiful lying on the pavement alone...and i love the rusty look of the leaf...
Today we went on a fantastic trip to Ein Gedi - by the dead sea.
8 families...lots of energy...a shining sun...plenty of laughter...a well planned picnic...stunning views...smiling kids...paddling in the streams...climbing mountains...beautiful colours and textures...collecting treasures of nature...just what we needed...a perfect day!!
...in the end i just went with my intuition and produced this set of collages...
I like how some of them came out looking like winter jumpers in their texture!
happy thursday everyone!!
