“Neighborhood Scene 1” Mixed Media on Paper, 2013

My first sustained drawing out on the streets of İbrahimpaşa…getting acquainted with my surroundings. There is no better way to do it than to visit the same place for several days, sit in the shade against the houses, watch the tractors drive by, practice my Turkish with locals, and fulfill that uncontrollable desire to capture not only what I see, but everything I feel at that moment.  IMG_0737 IMG_0739 IMG_0740
