God is showing Samuel what the people of Israel will have to put up with if He appoints a king. Their olive groves, vineyards, wheat, and cattle will all belong to the king and he is the only one who will benefit from the people's hard work.
Here I've depicted a young peasant woman leading her donkey through a vineyard.
What I found the most difficult about this scene was deciding the level of detail in the background. I generally keep the focus on the people and their expressions, but I wanted the vineyard to look lush and colorful. I ended up putting clusters of grapes, mostly towards the trees in the forefront, and added texture to the leaves.
