Sketching Sites: al-Aqabah

Aqabah, Jordan

I sketched this scene from a high rooftop, my subject being the Al-Sharif Al Hussein Bin Ali Mosque. Open air markets wind through the foreground where camel’s head and parrots are common fare. Beyond the mosque, the Red Sea opens in a glory of coral and shipwrecks continuing on to Egypt.
