I am often asked how I begin an artwork and this drawing shows the first stage. This is for my new collage of women and cow crossing a ford in rural India.

This is the Chintz skirt of another shopper at the spice stall. I painted the pattern free-hand on paper using Disperse dyes and heat transferred this onto fabric.
