I spent the last three weeks teaching in Metangwe, Kenya. It was an amazing experience and I hope over the next few posts to share the lessons I learned and the images that are seared into my brain and heart. I took my watercolour travel kit, my Pentel water brush and my Moleskine watercolour journal. Inspired my the many urban sketchers, I attempted to capture the new world around me. The women of Kenya are hardworking, resourceful and talented. I was fascinated by the way they were able to carry water or other burdens on their head, sometimes while talking on their cell phone! Even very little girls are able to perform this feat–you can see them practising in the evenings on their way back from the watering hole.
