Watercolour has become a very large and important part of my life-living in Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates for 16 years has given me plenty of inspirations for my paintings. Painting even just an Arabic building is beautiful.
I love watercolours and I learn more and more every day.

I forgot how to put watermark, so I used one of function of fpc to write my name in it.
When I paint camels, I always think about how I can move on a paper.
Luckily almost all camels are wearing blankets in Al Ain Camel racetrack when they are in a training time.
So I can use those blankets to swing.
This time I wanted let them swim in water.
Next time I should paint some more strong colour in the back ground.
Camels are wearing blue blankets but it was too ordinary, so I changed to red. どれが誰の、脚なのかは、あまり、考えずに描いている。 それらしく見えたらいいのね。とくらいにおもっていないと、頭がおかしくなる。
watercolour and acrylic.
I painted this long time ago with watercolour,
but I wanted to experiment one thing this time.
I added with acrylic on this watercolour panting.
Very soft watercolour turned to very powerful painting I think.
Actually I've come to like acrylic. I will not try a lot, but sometimes great stimulation for me.
Zayed Library R.A in Al Ain..
Al Ain is called Garden city, unfortunately I hardly paint flowers.
I know I should more like that.
I've been living here for 16 years, so surrounding green and flowers are not new for me at all.
So I've lost feeling of appreciation in ordinary day.
But if I go somewhere else,
I feel there is something missing.
So many people are working hard to maintain beautiful streets and roundabouts as well in Al Ain.

It is so much fun to paint with acrylic.
I am using a flat brush all the time.
I am glazing colour like wateroclour.
The technique is almost same as watercolour for me.
There is no rule for acrylic.
I can make a rule for acrylic.
Very versatile medium.
I love it.

When I went to Al Ain zoo for sketching 2 weeks ago,
I didn't want to miss sketching this lion.
I begged him. please look at me.
Please, please look at my camera. I wanted to paint his front face.
I waited quite long time, but he didn't move at all.
It looked like a statue.
The entry fee is 30dhs.
That is very costly for me.
So I can't go very often.
So I begged him again.
Please look straight, because I can't pay another 30dhs the next day only for him.
But he was so stubborn
He even didn't move a 1 cm.
So I got his message, he wanted me to paint his side face.
I got it.
Thank you for giving me a great chance to paint your side face.
But could you do me a favour?
Could you please move a little bit another day when I come here to meet you?

To explain about how different between acrylic and watercolor to someone.
