A few snaps from last week (and a filler post on my blog since I haven't been drawing!) As the Emir died last week, Kuwait now has a 40 day mourning period. Abu Dhabi and Dubai announced theirs a while back and I wondered what evidence there would be of a country in mourning. Well, I haven't really seen much except that the flags are flying at half mast and the shops that used to have 'muzak' are now silent (what a relief!) Also, some cars have put tributes and blessings in their back windows - this was the nicest one I've seen.
No, it's not Princess Di at the Taj Mahal, it's Fiz at the folly. Just so you can see how nice that corniche is. One of the many follys and sitting areas. I often think this would be lovely to draw but then again, maybe all those lines and shadows would drive me mad! BTW, why doesn't Photoshop have a 'hairbrush' or 'liposuction' function?
I had to take this. It was in a very swanky area, letting the neighbourhood down.
