#348 – Turtle tower (Thap Rua)

ACE.348-turtle tower (thap rua) 170402-2-wm

I went for a walk today around the Hoàn Kiếm Lake today – the sun is shining and everyone is out promenading on the pedestrianised streets around the lake. The most enjoyable part of doing this sketch was chatting to some random stranger who wanted to watch me! It was him that told me that people used to take a boat to this little temple to pray and that there used to be a huge turtle in the lake, that recently passed away.

  1. The lake must have wanted you to know its story so it sent you a kindly stranger to be the story teller. As for the turtle, he you must imagine if you are to draw him. There’s a motif!

    Your picture looks so joyful. You must have been having a good day. You caught the whole delight of the bright sun and lively air and beautiful watery reflections.
