An Unexpected View (+ Ink)

I added ink to the original pencil drawing. I wasn’t sure how to deal with the complex lines of the trees – if I were to draw them all with pen, they would have overshadowed the church. So I tried wash and exaggerated the contrast. The moleskin paper was too thin to take the heavy wash but I was happy with the depth from the wash. The drawing started unexpected anyway.

An Unexpected View


The city center of Cambridge is usually busy with tourists and shoppers during weekends, so if I have to shop, I usually scramble to get out of the center as soon as possible. But this time I decided to take my time and check out a cafe my friend recommended. The inside was full and steamy, so I had to take a seat outside, and funny enough, only then I noticed the view ofย The Round Church, the 800-year-old church that Iย have long wanted to visit.

The air was hazy and cool, and as I drew, someone knocked on the cafe window behind me. An elderly couple smiled and raised their thumbs. It was a sweet unexpected excursion in the middle of the busy city.

Winter Reflections / ๊ฒจ์šธ์— ๋น„์ถ”์–ด


Sunlight in winter, landed on the street,
outlines what’s ahead, bleaches the rest;
its gossamer hand
repels inspection, but reaches close.
