Bilad Sayt, Oman

Oman is full of remote villages, forts amd towers. Over the last few years many of these ancient dwellings have become much more accessible through modern roads. 

It's a stunning village in picturesque surroundings between the Western Hajar Mountains, half way up the mountain path connecting Al Hamra to Nakal/Al Rustaq through Wadi Bani Awf, and is adjacent to "Snake Canyon" 

Bilad Satt is definitely worth a visit on any trip to Oman 

This large original watercolour painting has been inspired by the off road journey I made there when I was able to make a sketch book study and take a number of photographs.

It has been painted on hand-made Fabriano Esportazione which is no longer being manufactured.

The very rough textured surface is incredible to paint on in watercolour. You can create some amazing textures and "wet on wet" effects.

Dhow Reflections

This original watercolour was inspired by sketchbook studies in watercolour of the dhow harbour in Kuwait. It has been painted on hand-made Fabriano Esportazione which is no longer being manufactured.

 

The very rough textured surface is incredible to paint Gulf Art in watercolour allowing you to build up clear translucent washes of colour that give a sense of depth, time and space, ideal for a subject as simple as a lone dhow resting in still waters. 

 

I've been to the Fabriano paper Mill in the Marches region of Italy on two occasions to purchase their beautiful paper and leather bound sketchbooks.

 

I started to use their sketchbooks to paint "en plein air" just after my first visit to their factory in 2002 . After using up my sketchbook supplies from Fabriano, I now make my own leather bound sketchbooks, a very rewarding process.

Dhows, Calm Waters, Middle East

I'm fascinated by the way sunlight creates a lovely warm glow on these graceful fishing vessels.  

I spent some time painting these Arabian dhows one afternoon on location in the harbour in Kuwait.

Dhows, Sur

When I first visited Sur, a coastal down in Oman famous for Arabian dhow building, I painted several sketchbook watercolours of the dhows.

Jebel Akhdar

Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountain) in Oman. This Original painting won "The Artist's Prize" in the Royal Watercolour Society Competition for 2013.

I've been a couple of times and made number of sketchbook Studies which can be seen in my reproduction "Sketch Book of Oman".

The locals grow pomegranates on the terraces which are watered by an ancient yet efficient irrigation system called Falaj.
