On an island surrounded by the Southern Ocean, an arduous ascending trail carves a pathway between a river anda mountain range. This trail, which I will call the ‘Track’,is a border zone between urban developments and thewilderness the island is known for. As the human population increases, the Track is becoming more susceptibleto damage, becoming gradually wider, with vegetationbeing pushed back and the dense basalt rock face becoming exposed. The Track follows a creek bed before mounting towards the summit. I stop at a waterhole, unpack myequipment and set up to spend the afternoon drawing.As usual, I have sketchbook, pencils, water, fruit, hat,jumper, jacket and boots but this time I have also carried a large heavyweight roll of imported French paper,18 metres long and over a metre wide.
