Yangon’s Chinatown Market

This evening I was working with some images from a trip in 2010 to Myanmar.  I put together this small set from a walk along one of the market streets in Yangon’s Chinatown.  People worked, shopped, talked and lived on this street.  Vibrant, crowded, loud and unusual were some of the thoughts I recall from this stroll on my first day in the country.

  1. Hi there, Chris. I am writing to ask permission from you to, at some point, use your Tonquin Caribou photos as a reference for the gesture/proportion of future Caribou paintings? The rule of thumb when an artist does this is to change the subject by at least 25 % in another medium. I just have a difficult time finding the actual subject to draw/paint. Please let me know if this is a possibility. If shown in future exhibits, I would also mention your photography as providing that reference. Presently, I’m doing other stuff in the studio, but I was looking at your recent post and thought I’d ask while it’s on my mind. http://shepaintsred.wordpress.com/artist/art-2/#jp-carousel-6364
