This scene was inspired by sketchbook watercolours painted on location.

I received your beautiful painting this morning and am truly delighted with it. You have a great talent and your painting will certainly give me a great deal of pleasure. I have a great fondness for Dubai and in particular the Jumeirah Beach & Burj al Arab. The colours you have chosen are magnificent and they certainly show the Burj in all it's splendour! Many Thanks.

We were travelling through the desert on the way to Sur, when we saw a young Omani man riding a camel with three others in tow. We pulled over to greet him before he rode off into the desert.

The harbour in Kuwait is full of dhows. I spent many hours wandering around, marvelling at these beautifully shaped fishing vessels and sketching them.
Here, the dhows are silhouetted against the fading light.
