Flowers + Fish 

In the early evening in Saigon after the rain there is a wonderful atmosphere. The streets are damp, the air is cool and as the sunsets you can experience some beautifully rich colours. This woodcut is inspired by a walk through a local alley way market near my house in district 4 on the way to my wife’s parent’s house.  To the right of the image you can see the flower stall with a selection of live seafood underneath in buckets.

 

This set of woodcuts have been individually coloured with water colour.
