Landscape composed of loose black lines. The horizon line is about two-thirds from the top. There are squiggly lines in the foreground, perhaps suggesting water. There are mountains in the middle ground, most with shading on the left side. The largest mountain is in the top left quadrant. There are wavy lines in the background, perhaps suggesting clouds.
