2 Days, 2 Drawings


“Across the Golden Horn” Mixed Media on Paper, 2013

One of my favorite places to draw in Istanbul, is in karaköy, sitting by the Golden Horn and gazing across the water at Süleymaniye Camii.  I have done countless sketches from this vantage point.  Not only because the view is perfect for drawing, but there are also many comfortable places to sit, sip çay and eat a balık ekmek, a fish sandwich for 5 lira.  During my recent visit to Istanbul I spent 2 afternoons by the water, watching the ferries dock and depart, listening to the gulls and drawing the scene I know so well.
