What an incredible city.. Mysterious, spirited and ancient. This piece is mostly inspired by the breathtaking Great Wall and of the sight and sounds experienced during night trips around the Dongcheng District of Beijing.
Dongcheng with it’s many mist filled, beautiful and dreamlike courtyards, courtyards that are usually connected by secret alleys called hutongs. The hutongs are generally straight and run east to west so that doorways face north and south for good Feng Shui.
We really fell in love with Peking walking through it’s history. A city truly for the senses, some of which I’ve tried to capture in this composition.
