In arid sub tropical terrain, moisture collects in pits dug and walled in the volcanic ash. In each hollow, a vine is planted.
For this I threw watercolour at the page, creating the sky, crude green pyramids and a pink and brown ground. When dry, I drew in with charcoal and chalk to define the landscape. A bit of white and black gouache was used to create the stronger contrasts.
I have taken much inspiration from this recently formed and dynamic terrain.
