The study has been taken from the inside of the Man Mo Taoist temple in Hong Kong. I wanted to capture the smoky atmosphere of the incense, spiralling smoke and almost smelling the perfume of the incense itself. The interior was fairly dim except for a small amount of natural light from above. I have used some of the ash from the incense sticks I purchased at the temple to create some of the drawing to bring that sense of connection and place.
