Drawing of a chilean Espino (Acacia Caven). It is a small tree from the central zone of Chile and other countries of South America. It is very resistant to drought and its hard wood is used as charcoal. Although its many thorns, when it blooms it gives a wonderful spectacle of yellow flowers. Its fruit is a dry pod with the seeds inside.
The artwork was done with multiple ink lines (hatching) that forms a lattice that resembles the thin branches of the tree. The darkest areas were made with more hatching in the same oose and organic style.
