last year this day

How do you sketch when you are on a guided tour?

The answer is you have to stand behind the group and be super quick! This was the quick sketch I did last year this day for a family trip to Israel. The itinerary was quite packed but I still managed to do 4 sketches.

The view was just breathtaking from the Jewish Cemetary, Mt Olives. I could not resist the urge to sketch but I did not bring my sketchbook on that day. So, I did this at the back of the A5 size tour booklet. I invited Arieh, the tour leader to sign at the bottom of the sketch since he had been such a wonderful guide for the trip.
