Georgian Time

Gemal's Weapon
Two weeks ago I went to Georgia, my father's homeland. Pleasure to see brothers, aunts, uncles, nephews, grandmas, combined with hearty dinners did not left time for drawing, but felt so good!
Brother's Weapon

Today I post my quick sketches and watercolor I painted upon arrival back home.

If you are interested in Georgia, here is my uncle Gemal's photoblog, Georgia: Between Caucasus and Black Sea

And one of my latest discoveries-treasures: Nora MacPhail, Canadian Artist. Look at her paintings, they are full with sunshine.
