For Egypt, I see two similarities, but none of them is a reason to paint them looking like some Amenhotep or other Ramses.
1. Gigantic statues of Argonath.
2. A big royal necropolis.
For Mediterranean, that's good. I somewhat like fanfictions, and in mine, the Gondorians eat olives, drink wine, and grapes are widely cultivated in their land
I hope you had a Beautiful Christmas and I take the opportunity to wish you a wonderful happy new year too!!
Watercolor is the best. And I also can't help myself but appreciate other watercolorists above all artists, because this medium is wonderful and looks the best and most evocative
