Notes

‘I used to take my sketch book down to watch the Malay flower sellers in Adderley Street [Cape Town]. It was very loud and lively with these women chatting to each other, arranging their colourful wares and haggling with customers. I always bought a bunch or two and they didn’t mind me sitting there, after a few minutes they forgot I was there.’
