A lane, Nachlaot

It was such a backwater in the neighbourhood. But the houses were all so old and timeless. I tried to say something about the man and his son walking there.

Street in the Arab Quarter
Oil 25 x 35 cm

This street was in the Arab Quarter of the old city. I loved this aspect of the Golden Dome. I stood there for three hours being teased by a lot of Arab boys who seemed to speak good English.

Golden Dome from Petra Hostel
Oil 30 x 30 cm 

I loved this aspect of the Golden Dome. I found a hostel just inside the Jaffa Gate and went in to ask if I could paint from the roof. I was permitted, but when I saw it I relasied I was too high up so I asked if I could go down one floor. I did and this was a wonderful aspect.. Maybe I should do it bigger. .

Courtyard, Nachlaot
Oil 25 x 35 cm 

The area was full of surprises. This was possibly a courtyard or just steps to a house. But it intrigued me. I tried to say something about how hot it was.
