August Salt Marsh Sketches

August Salt Marsh Sketches is the third book in the series.

August is a great time of year, not least because of the warm sunshine and long hazy days. Though the sun does not always shine and the refreshing summer storms are also fantastic.

There may be less birds around at this time of year but the variety of insects and plants more than make up for this.

Because the atmosphere and wildlife of the salt marshes change each month there is always plenty for me to sketch. It may take a while for me to complete all 12 months but you can see the books completed so far below. I hope you enjoy these sketches.

More about the August salt marsh book

Finally if you are interested in the books you might like to know a bit more. There are 56 pages with other 80 watercolours and pencil sketches, each with their own colour palette. A brief and gentle narrative threads its way in between the birds, boats and seascapes.

Printed on silk paper with a matt laminated soft cover, the books are 216 mm wide by 135 mm (8.5 x 5.5 inches). Customers can purchase them directly from me with each book costing £10.00 plus £2.00 post and packing.
