The Temple Of Heaven

I just returned from a trip to Disneyworld with the Dalvero Academy. Despite it being January it was still pleasant enough outside to be able to draw and paint. On this day we visited Epcot. The one thing I really enjoy about Epcot is the ability to visit Africa, China, Japan, Norway, Germany and Morocco all in one day!

I have always loved the China pavilion because of the bright colors and architecture. I spent a few days in it marveling at how much there is to take in. Here is a painting I did of the Temple of Heaven. This temple was visited by the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties annually to say prayers to Heaven for good harvest. -Danielle
