January 30 x 30 Challenge #1 Drainage Pool View

January 30 x 30 Challenge  Hamei Yoav   View of Drainage Pool

A new year and a new art challenge!!! So Happy New Year to all and good luck on the challenge!!! A special thanks to Leslie for letting us participate in these unique challenges!!!

A time to put our creative juices running.   This is my third challenge and I am very excited first because of the subject and second is that I find myself less stressed then in previous challenges.   This time I will be using various media and formats, mostly small, mainly oils, crayons (Caran d'ache Neo Color I ) and maybe just pencil or charcoal sketches. My motto will be three S'es  Small  Simple Spontaneous.

My subject this time is Hamei Yoav our favorite spa..... with natural sulfur hot baths.... so this will give me a wide range of images which will include landscapes, trees and foliage, people, ducks and geese, and maybe even cats..... The spa is in the south near Kiryat Gat  and Ashkalon about a 45 minute drive.

My first entry is a general view of the fenced in drainage pool.  There is a nice walkway around the pool as well as umbrellas and chairs and tables for those that want to be outside.  The pool also is the home of many ducks and geese.

30 x 20 cm  Heavy Brown Paper Caran D'ache neocolor I, water resistant wax pastels and regular ballpoint pen.

 Hidden under the labels is a link to Location and a google map... Its quite huge so in order to get where you are you have to make it smaller... so I pasted a small image of my location... Blue circle is starting point and red balloon is the spa.

I like your ideas for the theme and how to proceed and you're off to a great start. I'd like to know what part of the world you're in. I've never heard of these places.
