The Children of Otavalo

My journey took me to the animal markets at Otavalo, north of Quito. Here, amidst a heaving hubbub of pigs, cows, chickens and people, I sat down to sketch. When I realised I had a young audience for my sketching, I tore up pages from my sketchbook and invited them to draw too. So we did a kind of sketch exchange - I gave them each a picture in exchange for one of mine. I'd like to create a kind of collage re-enactment of the market, if I have enough pictures.
