The most visited city in Morocco


About the town

I have been to Marrakech twice. I found it a shock with so much going on and so different from England. I stayed in a nice Hotel on both occasions and would go out and sketch and draw every day, The second trip I went with my son Sam and we had a great time. I had to find a way to paint it that wasn't a traditional take on it. So I just figured it out when I got back and looked at other artists and saw different ways to interpret it. I finally settled on a blocky abstracted style. The Atlas Mountains caught my eye and the pools which I thought would add to a composition

Oil painting is a slow process because you have to wait and be patient when adding layers it is however worth the wait as the finished results are worth it.


Gouache is bright and strong and is great for working out doors for fresh immediate results and is easy to transport and work with and that's why I just I love it


I like to take acrylic painting out with me when I am plain air painting but only occasionally as I now paint mainly in oil. I love acrylic and I also love oil
