Kyoto Imperial gardens practice

Hi Everyone!
Last week I was honoured to do a practice in Kyoto Imperial gardens as a student of Horticulture department of Chiba University. Oh, basically, we collected old leaves and turned over the stones in the atmosphere temperature 35 C (feels like 38) and humidity 67%.
In between I made some sketches about our work and Kyoto.

  1. Lovely works, Maria! Did you draw these in one day? It'll be nice if you add the date and your name on each sketches.

    1. Thank you, Kumi-san! From now on I will do date and name. These sketches from a week of travel in Kyoto and around (even one from previous stay in Kyoto).
