Drawing Harbour Street from Corby's Tea Rooms, which is in York Street, may seem a bit odd but this one, drawn this morning, is through the back door of Corby’s Tea Rooms looking across Albert Square at the back of Harbour Street. Oh well I suppose you either know Ramsgate fairly well or the sketch isn’t of much interest to you.
What can I say about Corby's Tea Rooms, clean, friendly, top quality, just about sums it up, here is what Trip Advisor has to say http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g186314-d2005344-Reviews-Corby_s_Tea_Rooms-Ramsgate_Isle_of_Thanet_Kent_England.html#REVIEWS
What can I say about the sketch it took about half an hour, from about 8.30 to about 9am when I had to go off and open my bookshop, so I didn’t get time to colour it in.
Black Pitt Pen size S available from WH Smith, Hobbycraft, Ebay and so on for around £2.50 and lasts for about 500 A4 sketches like this, £2.99 sketch pad from The Works in Ramsgate Garden Centre, this is the black one with the elastic to keep it shut, 48 sheets of 150gsm paper, don’t get the one with the thinner paper. The big snag with pen and ink is no rubbing out, so if you lose concentration you ruin the whole sketch.
For any aspiring art critics here is a photo of the view I drew.
