Our travels in India were so inspiring and fascinating that I suspect that subject matter from that trip will feature in my work for a long time to come. These pictures are just a taste of the imagery I will be working with.Detailed progress can be found on my website, in due course, with this link: http://www.sarahshowers.com/india.
Following my work based on the fishing in Sri Lanka I have used the same technique to create a small trial piece based on my days in the Indian cities of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.
I have been experimenting with a form of paper lamination to use actual images along side extracts from by trip diary. For me it encapsulates the colours and shapes of the cities in simple form.
Working with Indian silks to create a wall hanging.
I am going to experiment with further paper laminations and create a strip pieced background with printed motifs and hand stitch.
