The Sultans Favourite

"The Sultan's Favourite"  by Mark Harrison

 

"Fatima, the Sultan's favourite concubine of the seraglio waits for his attentions on the raised terrace that  overlooks the palace and surrounding oasis town. A hot wind blows off the desert in the sultry late afternoon offering little relief from the oppressive heat that has forced everybody else in the palace to seek shelter until later in the day. Naked apart from some jewellery she drinks mint tea on a fine Persian carpet from a small ewer after smoking some apple shisha in a narghile brought to her by one of the eunuchs. Her thoughts drift to the evening ahead, languid but forever trapped in the gilded cage of the Sultan's Harem......."
OK as you can see, I have decided to paint an Orientalist picture with nods to Gérome, Ernst and many other painters from the great era of Orientalist art in the late 19th century. I wanted to do a picture with the sun behind instead of contre-jour which so many of my paintings use as it's main lighting. I wanted rich bright colour using lots of reds, oranges and yellows for a hot almost oppressive atmosphere and thought it would be nice to paint an Orientalist fantasy.

............. BY THE INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED AWARD WINNING ARTIST MARK HARRISON!!!!

 

 

 

Stunning Atmospheric Oil paintings by Award winning Artist Mark Harrison of British landscape, Venice, London, New York, S.E Asia, Bali and beyond. Mark Harrison was an extremely successful professional illustrator painting nearly 500 book jackets for most major UK & USA Publishers and winning a number of Awards!! Mark is well known in science fiction and fantasy genres!!

 

Over 500 Book cover illustrations!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feeling constricted by the demands of  illustration in 2003 Mark devotes all his time to painting  for sale in fine Art Galleries!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Mark Harrison now paints mainly in oil on board. Many paintings focus on atmospheric landscapes and cityscapes, mainly London, New York and Venice, but he has also developed a more idiosyncratic style and content, reflecting an interest in more elusively symbolic and surreal subject matter. Most recently Harrison has developed an interest in plein air painting: landscapes started in acrylic on location and finished in oil in the studio.

 

 

Mark Harrison exhibits regularly at the London Affordable Art Fair, Art in Action and at various UK galleries. His paintings have been accepted for the Pastel Society Open Exhibition (2005 & 2006), the Royal Society of British Artists (2008) and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (2008 & 2010).

 

 

His work is often featured in magazines, including Artists & Illustrators (2009) and International Artist (2006 & 2011). He was a finalist in the International Artist Landscape Challenge (Feb/Mar 2011) with his plein air painting, ‘Flax field from Cissbury Ring’.
