The painting is based on my memories of our recent trip to Vietnam. The bottom left is a simple representation of the terraced rice paddies in the northern highlands, with a bold dividing feature from the next section representing the misty highland hills near the south China border. The next sections are based on Hoi An in central Vietnam. We did not go any further south apart from passing through Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon) on the way to Kuala Lumpur.
On the other side I'll try to keep it simple - just a sampan and some general colouring. We'll see how it looks.
The next one I have planned will be even more abstract than this one.
