During the full moon in Scorpio, people in Thailand celebrate the annual Lantern Festival called Loi Krathong.  The streets are filled with people setting off fireworks, the skies are filled with rice paper lanterns and the rivers a float with little lotus shaped boats.  This drawing is using layers of ink, watercolour and pastels, a map of the Old Square in Chiang Mai in Thailand and an automatic drawing scribble on top.
