Jibril (emerging from the sea of light) – 36×55 Oils on Canvas


The third of the big three (Raphael, Michael and Gabriel or Jibril), I have chosen to paint Jibril in his Islāmic incarnation. The story that inspired me to paint this work tells how every evening Jibrail  dives into a sea of light.  As he emerges he shakes away the drops of light from his six unfolded wings. Each droplet grows into a new angel giving praise to Allah.

The medium and larger drops of water in this work each reflect a tiny angel in them representing the birth of new angels. I suspect I will revisit this theme over and over again.

This piece is Oils on Canvas painted in my signature ochre technique using layered washes and strategic removal of paint to create a wonderful three dimensional look and a strong emotional feel. Skin tones are produced using this technique with colors and glazes to enhance the emotive qualities and sketcherly aspect of the figures. The canvas is used as an element in this painting lending it’s texture to the overall work. The colors are warm, earthy and sensual with a wonderful tonal quality.
