Haven’t been anywhere lately, so I’m reworking some sketches from four years ago

We arrived at this 800-year-old village in East Azerbaijan Province of Iran in early April 2017 on an archaeological tour organized by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. The architecture here is similar to that of Cappadocia, Turkey, about 1000 km to the west. 

There was still a lot of crusty snow between the conical volcanic rock dwellings but there were definite signs of spring by the stream below the village.
