This is the view of Dubai looking northwest from our favourite Tex-Mex restaurant. (Yes, we ate a lot of Tex-Mex in Dubai when we lived there) The large Jumeira and Iranian mosques, as well as the smaller neighbourhood mosques closer to the beach can be seen lined up facing Mecca, almost directly west of Dubai.
This small version of my full-sheet watercolour belies its rather pale presentation of what was a pretty spectacular sight…  
Tomorrow I’ll outline the ‘posterizing’ process, and show you the (surprisingly) matched pair of posters that ‘Banff at Night’ and ‘Sunset in the Gulf’ turned into…
