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
