Portraits of Khartoum
by Sue Pownall
About the Book
Early in 2010, I had the opportunity to work in Khartoum for 4 months. During that time I sketched and photographed the people and the city.
The results are in this book.
Originally from the UK, Sue Pownall is an artist travelling extensively for work and inspiration, and is currently based in Qatar. She portrays the essence of her surroundings in realistic pen & ink drawings. In addition, her sketchbook is her constant companion as she sketches the details that give each location its particular flavour: the people. architecture, natural scenery, and everyday objects. Furthermore, she often brings colour to her art through watercolour washes as she strives to convey to the viewer the feeling that attracted her to the subject. In December 2010, she participated in her first group show in Muscat hanging 3 drawings of Sudan. Oman & Africa: Artist’s Stories. From January 2011, she has been a featured artist at art-is-fun.com and is currently taking part in an online blog exhibition. In April, she is participating in the Trans-Siberian Arts Centre.
