The sketches are inverted relative to the foliation. The principal sketches at the centre appear to continue from those on folio 6 verso opposite (D35345). Turner has inscribed the first of these sketches in pencil with a number ‘1’. Above and below these are scalloped strokes of the pencil, perhaps marking the initiation of a sketch, which Turner has left undeveloped. At the bottom of the page Turner seems to have begun to render a further cliff formation but has also left it undeveloped.
The paper is spotted in some areas with a black substance.
