New book of sketches – October

October Salt Marsh Sketches is the first in a series of
monthly salt marsh sketch books.


These sketches are part of a project to capture the atmosphere and wildlife throughout the year of two small salt marshes in the Bristol Channel at Portishead and Portbury Wharf.

I hope you get as much pleasure from the book as I had creating it!

With 56 pages and over 80 watercolour, pastel and pencil sketches of birds, boats, seascapes and more this book shows a glimpse of the salt marsh in October. A brief and gentle narrative threads its way through the book and each of the coloured sketches is accompanied by their own colour palette.

It is 216 wide by 135 mm (8.5 x 5.5 inches) and printed on high quality 300 gms silk paper with a matt laminated 350 gms soft cover so it has a lovely feel.

The price is £10.00 plus £2.00 post and packing and is available directly from me – please email me at to arrange delivery.  Alternatively you can purchase it from the Tinca Gallery in Portishead.
