Our great trip through South America comes to an end and I want to share some impressions with you. Especially one thing amazed me every single day: the fabrics and colourful, joyful way the (mostly traditional) women dress up. I got fascinated and happy every times I spotted one. The vibrant colours resonated so much with what I love and what I paint. It inspired me a lot and I cannot wait to have a white canvas in front of me to fill up with colours and patterns. And to dress myself up in joy too. Enjoy the colourful mix.
Handwoven fabric made from sheep wool by highlanders with (pre-) Incan symbols.
A very colourful hat from the Titicacan women at the Capachica Peninsula
Proudly dressing up in joy. The embroidered jackets and hats are a one-in-a-lifetime purchase, tailor made and cost more that 100€.
How cute is that!! I love the tradition of cheering up the ends of the braids.
Details of a skirt. I am in love with the beautiful details and the pink inner layer- it pops!!!
I couldn't help but draw some impressions in my sketchbook. You can find more on my Instagram https://www.instagram.com/redhead.art
Big hug, one last time from Peru
On this blog I share the tiny steps it takes to realise a dream and to document the journey for myself. Maybe it is inspiring for you- I would love that and it is the reason why I share it with you.
