Xa Phong Xuan near Hue, Vietnam, 2019, willow charcoal on paper, 31 x 24 cm
Breakfast turned into lunch as I sat and drew from the deck of Alba Wellness Retreat Restaurant. The view was of the retreat’s lotus pond and arched bridge, with a misty backdrop of the Truong Son mountains. These mountains run parallel to the coast and extend over 1,000 km down the length of Vietnam, extending into Laos and Cambodia. I sat there for over 4 hours completing this drawing.
