The market in Phnom Penh – Cambodia

market Cambodia

What I like about drawing most, is how seemingly ordinary settinngs can turn into interesting pictures displaying unlimited details. The more closely you observe it, the more you discover.

When sitting opposite of this woman selling her vegetables, it took me a good hour to draw all her offerings in detail. It was unbelievable how many different vegetables she displayed on that table!

It can be quite a juggle to buy your groceries though, since I don’t know all the vegetables out here. When traveling Phnom Penh I got to stay with Nadia, a lovely Aussi girl I met on the road, I decided to cook us a good veggie meal abd made a stew of pumpkin, egg plant, tomato, red peppers and coriander. The grocery shopping on the market was definitely a good part of the fun!
