After a bit of walk down the river, we found a right spot to sit down. They had theirs opposite us.

Drawing โ€œTranquilโ€ / ‘๊ณ ์š”ํ•œ’ ๊ทธ๋ฆฌ๊ธฐ

Tranquil is drawn after a tree in Coe Fen. On fine afternoons, the tree stands with a glow of sunshine on its back. In the photo, you can see it is growing new twigs, that almost look like saplings, from its limb lying on the left. Surrounded with lush vegetation, it looks as though it symbolizes resilience.

In the drawing, I omitted all leaves and abstracted out the background, to focus on the form of the tree’s body. While I followed what was compelled by visual composition, I wonder how that changed the substance. To me, compared to the real-life model, the tree’s situation seems more desolateโ€”as some of you suggestedโ€”, as if the whole tree and its surroundings are burned down. Its ultimate victory, which in fact happened, is suggested only in spirit. I wonder how you feel.

I want to try another version of the tree. My challenge is to keep the spirit of hope (and perhaps the leaves) without ruining the composition. I may modify the form, but I’d like to keep the original tree’s intuitive appeal and subtlety. That’s a lot to wish for, so I would appreciate any recommendation for works to model after.

When refugees arrive at the host country, they wear their best clothes, not rags. Not because their lives were not hard, but because they want to start their new lives well, with dignity.
