Old Arabia - Camel Train

About this painting

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


I always feel this scene is not real - with the colours so orange, but it is!


I have been to the desert of 'Rub al Khali' the Empty Region of Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, and the sands are amazing in their colour. For me as a visitor it was also strange to see wild camels wandering the desert and gathering in herds near the road fence on the major highways between Dammam and Riyadh.


I painted in the cool from photos I had taken, and reference material using soft pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured cream paper to give that background heat feeling.





The Original is sold.
