In many ways this can be viewed as the prototype of the others in this series. A sequence of steadily-smaller circles is placed within the drawing, such that each new circle goes into one of the interstitial places between previous circles. One could color this many ways, or simply use black and white; here I have chosen earth tones in part because this pattern resembles rocks-gravel-sand that one can see on a beach. Another title for it is "the alluvium archipelago".

The impression is that of an infinitude of ever-shrinking pebbles. The original has about 16000 circles, all fully resolved. This image has been compressed for internet use and the resolution is much less.
