Carpet Corner – Essaouira Morocco

Description

I travel a lot and love Essaouira in Morocco which I have visited many times, often with some of my painting students. This subject is typical with it’s colourful figures, rich carpets and local white washed buildings. Hard work painting in the heat but so much more rewarding than taking a photo as, looking at this image, I can feel the warmth and remember the shuffling sound of people passing by in their babouches ( local, also colourful)  footwear.
