Roots (Avebury) - 1 and 2

Acrylic ink

Line and wash
On the top of one of the embankments that surround the village of Avebury in Wiltshire (best known for the stone circle that also surrounds it), I found a group of trees with roots exposed by erosion. The pattern of - or, rather, the random shapes created by - the tree roots was wonderfully fascinating and I just knew that there was potential for a vibrant artwork there.

So far, I have tried two interpretations.

Edit: There are now more:

Number 3, on paper
Number 4, on canvas, for The Princes Trust
