Time has flown since my last post and I haven't had much time for drawing so I'm posting a sketch from last year. This is a feature from one of the main shopping malls called Sharq Souk. It looks like an old wind tower from the days before air conditioning (the hot air would rise up here and keep the houses cool). The shopping centre backs on to the sea and arches around a marina at the front. There are plenty of areas of interest to draw but I decided to keep it simple and focus on the tower. I should have done a lot more in the time but someone came over to talk and I lost my momentum! It's a simple sketch but it reminds me of that lovely sunny day sitting near all the yachts in the marina and chatting with friends.
