Print title Halong Way from Here

This is a wonderful memory of a holiday in Vietnam before the pandemic. Christine likes the way that the pastels brings a calming serene feel to this beautiful area.

Visual Description - A landscape pastel drawing. An island in in the middle of the drawing with sheer grey rock faces with green on the top. There are two similar islands to the right and on on the left edge of the drawing. In the gap between the left and central island there are a string of islands in the middle distance. The sky above is a hazy blue and in the foreground is water with reflections of the islands.
