oleaginous

The sketch was from the origin of the word oleaginous. I imagined a boat discovering an island of olives and olive oil in various bottles. There are people swimming in the waters, if you can make them out!

Olive oil bottles are so colorful so I couldn’t help coloring them in Photoshop.
