Old Arabia - Arabian Door

About this painting

(Click on painting and print examples to show full images)


One never ceases to admire the architecture, craftmanship and skills of Arabian builders. This doorway at a fort in the desert near the oasis town of Al Ain, UAE is typical with its intricate scrolls and elaborately embossed doors.


It is also clever in its use of shade and can give the weary traveller a respite from the harshness of the sun - even if the traveller does not want to go through the doors.


I painted this in soft pastel from a photograph - when the temperature is approaching 50C then one tends not to paint on location, it is better to take a photo and run to the nearest refrigerator!





The Original is sold.
