Work on paper

I love to work on very detail ornaments. It was always considered as ornamental work and not worthy of showcasing with other art work.

I always did this kind of work in order to relax. My meditation if you want. I like to get into the zone of doing something that is repetitive and allows me to relax and clear my mind.

Lately I decided to do a series of work on paper that will allow me the freedom to render the hell out of them and bring my 'need' for detail work to a personal satisfaction. As I get looser in my painting in oil, I chose to do this group as illuminated manuscripts. 

I choose elements from traditional Arab illuminated manuscripts, Jewish symbolism and Hebrew calligraphy, to create this new series.

I work on heavy weight illustration board 20"x 30", use pen and ink for outlines and water colors for painting the images.
