My final sketch of the evening was done whilst sitting with the Omani women waiting for a parade of performers. In front of me sat the two brothers in my top sketch. They caught my attention as they were in thick winter coats and wooly hats. I know it is winter here in Oman, however the evening temperature was about 18c, which hardly warrants such clothes. I had a child sat next to me who was fascinated with my every move, whether drawing, checking my phone, or taking photos.

Something that amused me throughout the evening was the swarms of photographers, mainly from the Omani Photographic Club who are a very talented group. I am still trying to decide on the correct collective noun, however as there was often one subject surrounded by 20 photographers, a swarm seems appropriate. This is not a great photo but you can get the idea.

NB: All sketches are completed 100% at the Muscat Festival and are drawn from life.
