Nicely done James, very effective shading and I agree it is a great little village, when its not full of tourists :)) nice drawing James.

Great sketch, I like how you've drawn the cobbles in particular

Great sketch James. Just like being there and will be soon !

Thank you Richard. Enjoy your visit.
