Using a handmade marking brush: the handle is made from a bamboo stick and jute twine, the brush/roller is a wine cork with bundling wire through it to roll on. The corks were uneven and made textures like birch trees. When I tilted the cork to get a more defined line, some ink poured out of the core. Moving the rolling cork in different directions allowed me to establish two distinct elements of this painting: the vertical trees on the left and the diagonal slope of the rocky mountain base on the right. As you can see, they intersect at the thick tree in the near-center of the composition.
