Just a quick one to tell you I am back in the Middle East for a spell!
I haven't brought any paints with me, but I hope to do some sketching while I am here in the UAE. I wish it weren't so hot though- I would love to walk around and do some drawings of mosques- but in fifty degree heat it's not really possible! But I'll do my best!
Here is a small sketch I did waiting in line for my medical examination for my working visa I started to gather a crowd while drawing, and wasn't sure if I would offend anyone. Images of people are not permitted in Islam but there seem to be some funny exceptions to this rule!
