I have to admit that since I have been doing these sketches the positioning of public seats that actually face good views has become a real issue, a prime example being the cathedral, here in Ramsgate I would say the most iconic view would be of the red brick arches synonymous with Ramsgate, and yet I don’t think there is a public seat facing them.
This painting of Canterbury Cathedral Gate took about half an hour. Size S Pitt Pen, and the washes are mainly Napels yellow, Paynes grey, brown madder and yellow ochre. W&N arist's quality. just cheated and put a wash on the one of the cathedral gate
