Electric Briars

We have spent some time studying the magnificent and menacing  thorny briars that are sprawling out of hedgerows at this time of year.  Their lethal spikey thorns as sharp as talons grow like hooks from the strong hexagonal stems offering up the most enticing ruby/orange rose hips. Well guarded fruit;  "Come and get them if you dare!" 

Kombisketchtour is happy to admire from a distance and love to get the chalks out to describe the viscous but delicious contrasts of the Briars and Brambles.
