Untitled was created during Dominic's time as a student at Edinburgh College of Art. The black lines are made with etching plate and the green of the palm tree has been painted on afterwards. The drawing evokes a relaxed atmosphere - with the church almost resembling a smiling human face, and the palm tree with the suitcase below indicating tropical adventures.
