This is the first in what I hope will be a series based on native wildflowers and found objects from the Burren (of course). Fanore beach is where I always begin my Burren trips, so these objects represent what I saw and picked up while walking along the coastal edge of that magical place. Shells, rocks, driftwood and old pieces of rope are typical of what you find on Irish beaches, but I must say, each beach does have its own personality and the ocean seemingly gives up unique objects depending on where you are.
Anyway, much more to do here—sharpening, more darks—but I am still liking the idea . . . colored pencil and graphite.
