Phoenicia by jcbarquet Phoenicia by jcbarquet
Commission done for ~geromefuticcelli.

This is a tribute to my own Lebanese roots. I tried to depict Phoenicia, which is the culture from which the Lebanese come from. The Phoenicians were sea-faring traders who carried merchandise across the Mediterranean.

The tree on the right is a Cedrus libani, and it is characteristic of the region. It also appears in the flag of Lebanon.

Painted entirely in Photoshop.
Hope you like it!

I can almost feel the salt spray and sea breeze in the brilliant scene. And wow, what a beautiful ship and tree, in scene rendered in an amazing choice of colors!

That is extremely wonderful. One of your best, maybe because I love the Phoenicians myself.
