Like with many of my paintings, I have used a combination of oil paint and pigments plus sand for this one. I created it shortly after a visit to Egypt, and the colors were selected on the basis of colors that you often see in Northern Africa. The background (as you will notice) shows the structure of the canvas, as the paint was applied very superficially, as if it is the wall of a neglected building. The camel appears more like a silhouette, suggesting deformation of the image by hot desert air.
This painting has found a new owner. If you are interested in any of my work, simply contact me (also for a free tour – no obligations) or visit www.clemenssuter.com/art.
