Coexistence Amidst the Tension


This sketch, in contrast to the last, is more of a "James Richards" kind of sketch.  Again, not of the quality he does, but more the flavour.  Richards wrote a wonderful book on architectural drawing and architects often do loose sketches of architecture concepts, showing buildings in context.

We see again here, the Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount in Jerusalem.  A worker cleans the fountain where Muslims perform their ablutions before entering the shrine.  Over on the right, Israeli soldiers (young men and women) chat informally in a group, as they seem to do all over Jerusalem. I realize now that I edited out the guns as I was sketching.  I don't like guns.
