Painting plein air in the Boggeragh Mountains..

This is a plein air I was fortunate to get in this week, in the Boggeragh Mountains.
I have been painting around the same area for three days as the scenery is so marvelous 
and the weather so mild.

Thanks for looking :)

Drawing the view of Carrigagulla from Kilcullen

This is a pencil sketch of Carrigagulla on the edge of the Boggeragh mountains done
with Derwent pencils and Minen leads.
For the distant hills I used hard 9h, 6h and 2h while the closer views 
were achieved with soft 7b and 5b. It was a little large to post on the page here so
if you need to view it in greater detail you just click on it.

Thanks for looking :)
