A Fine Art Original Watercolour Painting of Dhows

When we first visited Oman in 2007 we were fortunate to go on a day trip to the coastal town Sur, famous for its dhow building. I recall doing a couple of sketchbook watercolours of these distinctive sailing vessels in the heat of the day, the high sun catching the top of the clouds.

 

These studies of dhows became the inspiration for a number of studio paintings including one on gold leaf and this watercolour.

Oman

The Sultanate of Oman is a country of breath-taking natural beauty, interwoven with a kaleidoscope of history and legends. As the oldest independent state in the Arab World, Oman has embraced modernisation and progress while retaining the core aspects of its culture and heritage. Making it the perfect travel destination for those seeking an authentic Arabian experience.

The Sultanate of Oman is the only country in the world composed mostly of oceanic crust and rocks that originate from the Earth’s mantle. Evidence of continental drift can be witnessed in many of the unusual rock formations and topography around Oman, including the coastline around Muscat.

Oman’s culture is deeply rooted in the Sultanate’s proud heritage and history of seafaring, trading and exploration. Today, long-standing traditions blend seamlessly with modern day living. With the latest fashion and electronics brands sold alongside traditional hand-made crafts, jewellery, and even goats and cattle at souqs around the country.

Omanis are very welcoming of visitors from other countries, a fact that is reflected in the generous hospitality extended to guests.
