It’s always amazing to experience a place you’ve never been through the eyes of someone else. A photograph is always remarkable of course, but a drawing or sketch captures it in an even more expressive way.
It’s a genuine representation of what someone saw, and felt. Colors used are the ones that spoke to and were felt by the creator the most.
There’s something really beautiful about spending time crafting and sketching a memory that so inspired us. A hundred photographs of this would look somewhat similar, with varying angles, lighting, and perspective. But a hundred sketches of this scene would result in a hundred drastically different drawings conveying memory, experience, and feeling.
