A watercolor-penciled Illustration, summarizing the first big paragraph of one of my favorite Hans Christian Andersen's stories -- The Nightingale. It took place in China, one of the first sentences said --"The emperor’s palace was the most beautiful in the world. It was built entirely of porcelain" . I immediately thought of the blue-white Chinese porcelains, so I decided to drew it in that style.
