Sur Oman

When Susan and I first visited Oman in 2007 we were fortunate to go on a day trip to the coastal town Sur. It’s famous for its building of Arabian Dhows. I recall doing a couple of sketchbook watercolours on location in the heat of the day, the high sun catching the top of the clouds.

These studies of Arabian Dhows became the inspiration for a number of studio paintings. They included one on Gold Leaf and a number of watercolours. These are available as a limited edition prints from alanreed.com.

A few weeks ago I painted a 14” x 10” watercolour of Arabian Dhows. I’ve captured these beautifully shaped sailing vessels lying out of water. I’ve filmed the painting process for a new Painting Video which you can watch on Youtube.

Dhow Factory Sur

Sur in the Gulf of Oman is one of the most historic boat-building centres in Arabia. And today, artisans still hand-craft dhows of all sizes at the Dhow Factory in Sur, using centuries-old techniques.

By the sixth century, the city of Sur had become an important center for trade with East Africa. Later, its reach expanded all across the Arabian Sea. Arabian Dhows Paintings and Limited Edition Prints are available at www.alanreed.com.

And from Alan Reed Gallery in Ponteland Northumberland.
