Old Arabia - Fishing Dhow on Al Kaleej

About this painting

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


A traditional fishing boat on Al Kaleej - The Arabian Gulf. Nowhere here are the super-technology super-trawlers or drifters of Europe and Japan depleting stocks.


Al Kaleej is a shallow sea and fish caught here range from Tuna to Hammer-Head Shark with just about everything else in between, there are also Dugong 'Sea Cows' here.


I painted this scene in soft pastel on a blue-grey Canson Mi-Teintes paper, size approx 20"x 28", and the whole painting just flowed.... I did it in one long evening!


I have also produced a special night image 'folly' from this painting using digital techniques. Click here to view the page.




The Original is part of my private collection and not for sale.
