Sheik of Araby

Sheik of Araby  15 x 20  $150.00 plus shipping
Sheik of Araby  16 x 20   Oils on panel

First of all, I mean no disrespect to any sheiks or people from the regions of the world where a sheik might live or might have lived.  The title of the painting is from the song "Sheik of Araby".  Two versions of the song on YouTube can be seen and heard here and here.  Please, don't hurt me!

I used Winsor & Newton's Galeria brand Acrylic Modelling Past to build the texture of the blocks in the wall behind the sheik.   I was carried away (ya think?) in the sheik's left (viewer's right) side.  I could take out the lumps but . . .  I'm lazy?
