Picnic In The Mountains
Marwan George Khoury
Painting - Pen And Watercolour
Third work based on the 1950's in Lebanon (also see "Big Egos" and "New Year's Eve 1950's"). Sketched and painted in 2011.
This work depicts a women's picnic circa mid 1950's in the mountains east of the city of Sidon on the road to Jezzine, in southern Lebanon.
My mother is the one with the sunglasses smoking the waterpipe (Nargeela or Argeila), my aunt is the pregnant woman on the left, my maternal grandmother is the third from the right with the fancy suit and bow tie. The other women are cousins to my Mom and neighbours. I guess it was ladies day off.
Sketched in 2011 based on a tiny black and white photograph (2"x3").
Trivia: I used a Pilot Fineliner (one of my all time favourite pens) for sketching this work.
