Hot Marrakech with Atlas Mountains and Palms
Having been to Marrakech several times I love coming back to this subject. Living in Cornwall with lots of muted colours and mossy yellowy roofs it is a treat to go back to the heat and vivacious colours of Morocco. I like to paint this in my own way with a licence to do whatever I want to make it happen. It is mostly invention from the feeling of heat and colour and the bombardment of the senses. Worked over many weeks coming back to it, taking bits out and going over large areas till I am happy. Some glazing and some opaque colour whatever works.
