Old Jaffa - same spot by different sketchers

Summer is here and it isn't going to leave us for the next few months. People are hiding in air-conditioned places or at beaches and swimming pools, getting out at nights, when it starts to be cooler.
You needed to be real sketchers for not give up and come to our last sketchcrawl in Old Jaffa.
Bright blue sky and shinning white stones of the streets gave a strong contrast to everything. Heavy heat made the contrast look even stronger. Groups of tourists filled the square from time to time, and gave me a feeling that I'm traveling far away. But anyway, sketching takes me to the trip every time I open my sketchbook.

This colorful building attracted an attention of many sketchers - his blues and reds asked to be into our sketchbooks.

Ksenia Topaz' sketch
Nathan Halpen's sketch
I always love to see different approaches and points of view on the same spot. There are so many different ways to look at same place and even more ways to see it!

 Here we are, brave sketchers, and one's running :)
