Old Arabia - Oasis Fort, Al Ain

About this painting

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

 

Jeddah is one of the oldest cities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is a hustle-bustle city of seafarers, heavy industry and busy pilgrimage hub as it is the nearest city to Mecca.

 

I met an artist who lives there, Abu Al Enain, and have had the pleasure to paint in his studio. His art is wonderfully pseudo-abstract (typical Arabic art) but of real objects or people. He has a permanent exhibition at the Radisson Hotel in Jeddah.

 

I painted this scene in soft pastel of the old town from a photograph I took. In this region with the heat, the traffic and the police it is hard to paint on location, but I think the scene shows the quiteness of the street, a complete contrast to the shiny glass soul-less architecture not too far away!
