The final scene painted by Mark Robinson, Official Artist in Residence, shortly after Henrik Stenson putts for Victory at the DP World Tour Championship 2013.
The 'SHAMAL' that blew in towards the end of the 2013 DP World Tour Championship was a god send to Fine Artist and Painter, Mark Robinson. " Up to that point, there wasn't a cloud in the sky on the final day. Suddenly, just as the tension was mounting on the course and around the time of Henrik's fantastic shot to the 18th, sand started to blow in". "It covered my work in the Village", says Mark. " The sand and the late afternoon light added to the drama, I hope that I managed to capture a sense of that in the painting",
This is Mark's fifth year as the 'Artist in Residence 'to The European Tour for the Dubai season ending, 'Race to Dubai' Tournament. Last year Mark also painted at the European Challenge Tour Final at Al Badia G C, Intercontinental, Festival City Dubai. " I have been invited to paint at the DP World Tour Championship again this year and will be looking for other events on the Tour through 2014/15. Mark's portraits are very popular with professionals and club golfers. " I really enjoy the freedom of painting Golf Landscapes, it gets me out of the studio and is a pleasant change from portraiture. "
