Anthills abstraction

anthills

This is a small gouache I did a few years ago – it’s an abstract pattern based on the anthills you see in the Pilbara desert. I used a large brush to convey the feeling of the many red anthills with black shadows and the whiteish grasses that grow between the anthills. The anthills can be more than two metres tall and look like figures or earth buildings in the landscape.
