Preparing for cold days

These days we are experiencing cold weather in Isfahan. It's very pleasant to see the sun rays which make effects on the subjects and sketch them. To see the beautiful orange leaves and follow them.

My first sketch is from about a month ago, when the weather was warmer and the square was full of tourists, but now the situation has changed, and we must prepare for colder days.

Other works are also about people through my eyes on the sketchbook.

Walking in the Julfa district

Next to the Vank cathedral entrance
 Julfa district is a special district in Isfahan for me to walk, communicate with people and sketch the buildings and acitvities.

Julfa square at night
The historic square of Julfa is an small public square in comparison to Naqshe-Jahan square.
 Here is full of activities special in afternoons. There's mostly full of teenagers that time, and also some people come there to refresh and talk with their family members.

Julfa square and it's sundial
In north of the square there is a big beautiful sundial.

A sundial is a device that tells the time of day by the apparent position of the Sun in the sky. In the narrowest sense of the word, it consists of a flat plate (the dial) and a gnomon, which casts a shadow onto the dial. As the Sun appears to move across the sky, the shadow aligns with different hour-lines, which are marked on the dial to indicate the time of day. (From Wikipedia).
Wish you enjoy them/ Behzad

My favorite activity

Preparing my backpack with essential tools for sketching, wearing suitable cloths for the hot summer, and riding a lovely bicycle and searching for a little shadow. Then looking around. Everywhere looks attractive and eye-catching and has something to capture.

It is my favorite activity these days when I have free time. These are some of my sketches. I have worked on and colored some of them in Photoshop. Hope you enjoy.
