Razah Dancing, Oman – Original Watercolour Painting


An original watercolour painting which was inspired by sketchbook studies made on location.

We had travelled to Sur in Oman for the second time. Omani men were performing the friendly Razah Dance of the Swords. The dancing was accompanied by chanting and drumming. I spent considerable time enjoying the process of observing the fluid movements and overall spectacle in the late afternoon sunlight.

Oil Painting on Gold Leaf depicting Arabian Dhows against the backdrop of a sunset at Sur, Oman.

Painting of the Gulf on gold leaf in oils is a very satisfying process. The 22 carat gold leaf contrasts beautifully against the paint and yet there is harmony with the two mediums.

A beach scene painting of Barka, Oman which has probably been the same for thousands of years.

Fishermen bring in the catch of the day which is quickly purchased by the locals.

Knowing little of Oman until 2005 when I was commissioned to do two paintings for a client there. I quickly became fascinated by this ancient land so I began to read up on its history. The Omani people loved Sultan Qaboos

The Omani folk dance performances are a common sight in Muscat Festival venues and other cultural and social events in the capital. Never one to shy away from a good dance, the Prince of Wales  


Muscat, Oman’s port capital, sits on the Gulf of Oman surrounded by mountains and desert. With history dating back to antiquity, it mixes high-rises and upscale shopping malls with clifftop landmarks such as the 16th-century Portuguese forts, Al Jalali and Mirani, looming over Muscat Harbor. Its modern, marble-clad Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, with 50m dome and prodigious Persian carpet, can accommodate 20,000 people.
