Home again with 'what ifs'

We  had a lovely last morning in Bury Port on BH Monday, it was a bright sunny day so we went for one last walk along the beach.

I got a few last shots of texture and pattern to see me through to the next trip.

I loved all the opposing patterns in this shot and as I didn't have time to sketch it in situ, it later became this, with an added shell doodle.

I tried to sketch it quickly as if I was there and capture the atmosphere of it.....

This burnt piece of driftwood had the most amazing patterns.

I don't know if I'm correct but there seems to be a lot of clinker type pieces on this side of the bay, maybe it's slag that's been used for sea defences, but whatever it is, it has these lovely colour variations in it.

And these lovely inspirational lines.

I've finally had time today to wash my shells and the piece of metal I collected.

I'm especially pleased with this and couldn't resist having a little play with the work I'm doing on Thread traveller 

All in all it was a lovely trip.

I have enjoyed looking at your excellent photos and seeing what as come out of them. I must get back to my drawing before I have forgotten everything I've learned! Love the textures and colours of the driftwood and slag pieces. Beachcombing is such an addictive pastime and I come home with loads of bits.

Was a great trip missus, and you made the most of it, loving the sketches, must see them for real some time :-)
