Light, Color, Shadow, Marrakech Design

A beautiful Sunday morning seems a fine time to finally get around to sorting and posting some pictures from my most recent Peacock Painting trip to Peacock Pavilions in Marrakech. I feel like I’m taking a “virtual” trip back there….if you want to come along, you will see…

Transportation

..the most efficient form of transportation for getting quickly around the souks…

Souk-silk

..where purple silk hangs to dry….

Rust

…and rusted hinges pile up and just BEG for you to grab a handful (tempted!)…

REd-shoes

…red thongs sit on a “factory” line…

Pots

…and random pots form a perfect still life.

La-Mamounia

On the edge of the Medina, the gardens at La Mamounia invite you to take a casual stroll…

Palm-Shadows-La-Mamounia
…where stately palms cast shadows on a building halfway down the path.

Medersa

Perhaps you’d prefer some quiet reflection at the Medersa

Kautubia

…or a morning walk in the Koutoubia gardens under the watchful eye of the mosque tower.

Goatskin-Lamps

How about browsing for Fortuny inspired, henna-decorated goatskin chandeliers? It was hard to resist purchasing one of these, so I got two!

Essaouira-hotel

You might enjoy a quiet game of chess in a historic hotel in Essaouira…

Cactus-at-Majorelle

 

…or an afternoon enjoying the cactus gardens at the Jardin Majorelle?

Birds-and-grain

If you think a “virtual” trip is for the birds and are considering a REAL LIVE trip to Marrakech in the future, I am compiling an “interest list” for a 4th Peacock Painting trip in the next year or so. Drop me a line if you are interested…..

  2. Awesome!!! A fourth trip…I’m Marrakech or bust!!! Beautiful images Melanie, of a very special time and place. Also, have poured over every page of Modello by Design, Volume 2 Inspiring Images from Artist Portfolios…mmm, I think ‘inspiring’ might be an understatement. Great work!!!

  3. Hi Melanie – been waiting to see more pics. Great memories of the inaugural trip to PP! Peahens are we – funny. Love the tent. When is Maryam’s book being published? Can’t wait to see more of the project. Let’s go to Umbria what do you say?

  4. Maryam’s book is due to be out Spring of 2011. OK, let’s DO go to Umbria. How about October???
