Artist's Description

My drawing in the vector format using Inkscape (no auto trace) of an ancient arab dhow.

The sea is produced in Gimp and the sky is a digital painting of the sky above our house.

Dhows are ancient two-masted sailing boats that were used especially in the Middle East regions. Generally known as traditional Arab boats, dhows were used for trading goods and fishing activities. Dhows were typically of three to five hundred tones in weight and had a slender hull design. Dhows are still used in many countries around the world, mostly those in the regions between the Persian Gulf and East Africa.
