Arch with mother and child

An earlier post contained small pictures of Moroccan people caught on camera. I was interested in developing these images with larger works and had an afternoon spare. So I’ve used a simple backdrop, continuing with the theme of arches, to try this out. There is a story and balance to the picture and I’ve kept it simple. There are more colours in the walls that I normally use, which I think has worked.


Moroccan Mother and Child


It came to me that the boy was looking at something. So I’ve added a Moroccan ginger tom, on the hunt. The cat is also looking around – at what? Question, does the cat looking around draw you out of the picture?

  1. Nice lighting and shadows and I think the wall colours work well. Well done with the figures too. At first I thought the woman was walking towards me and then I realised it was her weird clothing! XM Date: Sat, 14 Mar 2015 17:58:24 +0000 To:
