A study from memory of field workers in Thailand
Field Workers--Thailand

While on a riverboat on the way to an elephant camp in northern Thailand, I observed these field workers who paused to watch us pass. They were covered from head to toe in wildly colorful clothes for protection from the sun and dust, and remained perfectly sill as our boat went by. They might have been something out of a scene in a Kurosawa film. I did this watercolor of the scene from memory that night back in my hotel room.
