Day 9, Drawings

Did some drawings today. It helps me to understand why I feel uneasy. The reason is: I came here with all this Material from Germany. It is not, that the people here are not working with these things. They do. But where do they buy it? It is shipped here from abroad, I mean by plane or with a car from Uganda. You need to do an expedition to by acrylic paint. And oil paint? No way, nowhere!
I don’t like, that I am affirming this by importing all this paint. As if it was not possible to do art without. Naturally it is! Working with simple material like pencils makes me feel better. I think that maybe I will look around what I find here and better make use local stuff. And leave my imported acrylics to the people here or to a school.
