photo study. working with pen pressure turned off is a great way to learn to judge and see colors correctly, you should do it :3 it looks cool, too
Coming from a librarian family, perusing a coffee table book about the history of libraries over the holidays, I snapped these pics of the Haeinsa monastery in the mountains of South Korea, home to one of the world’s oldest intact libraries, constructed in 1251 CE, where a set of Buddhist scriptures known as the Tripitaka Koreana is stored in wooden printing blocks.
The blocks are stored in open racks to allow air to circulate around them. The timber shelving structure is lifted off the ground on stone pads and the building itself, located at the highest point of the monastery grounds, sits on a huge stone plate surrounded by drainage channels. A narrow gangway on protruding brackets provides access to the upper shelves. The roof beams are painted with designs intended to invoke water and ward off fire. Apparently all these measures have worked because this amazing Buddhist library remains standing and functional. Buddhists, bibliophiles and lovers of libraries, be impressed!
