|Volunde Ankh and Beyond|

I bought some watercolours and used them to give some geological variety to this desert wilderness which, unwritten but in my head, is a landscape owing much to the Mexico of the early 19th century, prairies, chapparals, badlands, cold mountains ... prowled by murderous Injuns, and any century Arabia with its sandspace, wadys, kellas and magnificent naked stone hills prowled by murderous Beduwy. The geology as differentiated on the map will allow me to associate particular natural terrain features local to a region. The red spiral symbolises the halfgods' furacane on Volunde Ankh's doorstep.
I hadn't used watercolours before and derived pleasure merely from mixing the colours and slapping them onto a test sheet to examine the hue. Staring at daubs of colour of unearthly beauty is like eating icecream, you should try it. This is what I have so far, I need three more colours for a healthy palette. The clear plastic implement is a waterbrush, it opens easily for water to be added and held like a pen the nylon bristles become wet so you can wet your paints, very handy but I prefer using a standard brush.
