"A Gathering of Souls" was my attempt to capture the gravity of Ramadan and Makkah but also to celebrate the way they bring people- from family to complete strangers- together.
I chose the rust-colored background to represent the majesty of the moment captured in the painting is. But I also used the softer patches of the sky to give the sense of light shining through. After all, the moment may be solemn, but it's not dark.
The blurring of the white around the cities and people was intended to give the moment a more ethereal feel. This is about the gathering of souls. As pure an event as you can find.
I genuinely loved creating this piece, and I hope it inspires in you some of the feelings I hoped it would.
