'In the medina' depicts a quiet day on a street in the medina in Marrakech. Locals walk past and acknowledge shop workers selling ceramics, rugs, silver and gold. Rugs and fabrics drape the ceiling, creating warm hues of pink and orange, as the sun casts through. Sky light shines through the fabrics onto the ground and reflects onto the gold and silver in the shop stalls. Charmaine creates a feeling of dry heat, dusty air, a stillness to the scene. Soft lilacs and magentas contrast with the bright pinks and oranges, giving the painting contrast and depth. Charmaine has kept the brush strokes loose and prominent, giving the impression of a quiet day in the medina.
