Plein Air Painting in Marrakesh


In Morocco, the Marrakesh streets are very narrow and pedestrians have to contend with motorbikes on some of them. You soon learn to walk on the right, and if you donít the locals remind you so you donít get squashed!

Re: Plein Air Painting in Marrakesh


This is very near the main souk (market) in Marrakesh, and is packed with tourists. The big problem with painting in these narrow streets is the fumes from the exhaust pipes of motorbikes. Eventually I had to leave Marrakesh and escape to the mountains because I was feeling that I was getting badly poisoned by the terrible air quality. The things we put up with in the name of our art!
See my video and some information on how I painted it:

Re: Plein Air Painting in Marrakesh

These are fantastic! I've been to Morocco (including Marrakesh), so I know what you mean about the extraordinary light there. You've done a great job capturing it. Also, I love the splashes of color in your figures. Nice and bold!

Re: Plein Air Painting in Marrakesh


The light on this street in Marrakesh was incredible. There seemed to be no way to capture it in paint. It is the shadows that seem so vibrant in color when you are actually there. There is no way to capture the effect in a photograph. Read more about how I did the underpainting:

To paint loosely but still convey a feeling for your subject means you have to say a lot with just a few brushstrokes. Read my blog for some tips on how to do this.
