Water color

Water color or as it is often called aquarelle painting is a wonderful medium that has been used from the most ancient of times long before any other mediums were invented. Originally, water soluble natural pigment were extracted from plants, flowers, herbs and colorful powders that were used in cosmetics of most old civilizations. Minerals such as lapis lazuli, was ground and processed to make the pigment ultramarine for use in frescoes and oil painting.

I personally love to work in watercolors especially for quick sketches outdoors.
You can see in my gallery some examples of my watercolor sketches of the café theme. I love watching people as they sit around a table in all kinds of poses with great variations in their facial expressions . On many occasions I had a chance to find someone close enough to get into the unique intricate expression of their face and sometimes this results in a very good portrait.

As I walk on Shenkin St. I’ve notice a guy who did some work of art, simply painting with water colors (I think). He was so peaceful and calm, so I had to take some pictures.
This is one of many reasons why I love #tlv so much. Have a great weekend.

Josef Ralt is my friend for a very long time. We met when we were still in high school and since then I
Had the privilege to watch the career of Josef developing and taking off ,constantly growing.and expanding into new territories.
My house that is full of Ralt’s paintings and drawings is the best testimony to my appreciation of his talents.
Over the years Josef painted all of my family members, including myself of course.
I consider myself the most comprehensive collector of Ralt’s paintings, including some of his earliest works until the most recent ones from Budapest.
