Sketch from Cambodia: Phnom Kulen, Elephant Pond
After a scooter ride and a small walk through the jungles of Cambodia, we came across this wonderful site. I wanted to capture that moment as it just emerged out of the jungle as we turned the corner. Constructed around 802 AD Phnom Kulen or The Elephant Ponds is all that is left of what is believed to be the birth of the Khmer Empire. It was so peaceful.
I was able to visit in February of 2017 and I am just getting to painting some of my sketches from the trip.
