Cornish Wall


I live in Cornwall and the walls are are wonderful features which you capture perfectly

Great drawing Tessa

Brilliant sketching and observation Tessa.

Lovely drawing favourite place.. I have been there 3 summers and endless ocean watching..

Thank you Dixie and Jennifer, hadn’t thought of beasties!
