Starting out on a trek we met this delightful lady carrying her oranges to market, some of which she kindly shared with us. On handmade Indian khadi paper, over-layed with a collage base, made up of vintage envelopes, local newspaper, scraps of handblocked paper and stamps. This base is then overpainted in washes of transparent colour, the subject is then painted in acrylic paint. Finally I add touches of handblock printing, resulting in a many layered painting.
