Sketches for June book

I have started work on my second book, June Salt Marsh Sketches and many of the sketches will be posted on this website. “Sketches for June Book” is a new category to make them easier to find in one click.

Whilst not all will make the final cut I hope you enjoy a taster of what is to come in the June book which will include . . .

. . . June views of the salt marsh, both Portbury Wharf and Battery Point, plenty of wildlife including barn owls, reed buntings, canada geese, sedge warblers and so so much more.
