Fisherwomen are fun to draw, with their brightly printed saris and dresses, hair decorated with flowers, gold jewelry and often-colorful language. I spent a morning sketching in Panjim market, with the Sunday morning crowds often blocking my view.
A little section of the fish market is set aside for meat and poultry stalls. The mutton shop is where you buy goat meat. You select a piece from the meat hanging overhead from large hooks, and the butcher chops it up to your specifications on a large wooden log.
The sketches below are from a fish auction, held twice a day- when the fishing boats come in- in Devgad, Maharashtra.
See the guy walking away with the huge swordfish to the right of the frame? He just won that in an auction.
Me? I sketch and then I go home with some fresh crab and pomfret fish.
