Camel Man Oil on Canvas 24″x 20″ and Detail
A rich and exotic canvas studded with a contrast of Reds and Blues. If you like Orientalism, then You will love this! A Stage by stage account / video appears on Youtube. There is a close attention to detail in this painting in the patterning and arrangement of the blankets and camel bags, reminiscent of the Old Orientalist painters such as David Roberts and Richard Dadd. The happy smile on the camels face and the way that the reds of the camel bags intercept the composition horizontally. The figure is seen in a thoughtful pose as if he is planning his next part of the journey.
