Pen and Watercolour sketch of Minster Abbey in Thanet


This sketch of Minster Abbey that I drew today had some snags due to the weather, I think it would have been easier to define the shapes of the ruined end in bright sunlight. I think it is this ruined bit that dates from about 1,000 years ago and was once a lighthouse, when Minster was on the coast of the Wanstsum Channel, which made Thanet a true island.    

As you see the basic principle is the sketch in the defined parts of the building, scribble on the rest of it and honest the roof was red before the rain shower, which curtailed my sketching. Thanks to my wife who held up the umbrella while I finished applying the watercolour.   

Sorry I missed Ramsgate Carnival, other commitments, so no pictures this year

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
