The progress of drawing either requires a pencil, rubber, a lot of patience combined with much concentration on vanishing points light directions and shading, or if you go at it like me with a pen in hurry.
You can see from today’s sketch that there should have been a vanishing point over to the left of the picture at seated eye height and most of the lines going roughly from left to right should have met there, e.g. the line at the bottom of the glass in the door should have been up on the right and down on the left, the shelf over the window on the tight should have progressed from the one on the left and been wider and so on.
Fortunately I photographed it for comparison, but there is another side to this coin, sketching freehand in ink and putting all of the geometry to one side, which is a bit like, the business with the monkey and the typewriter.
That is that yes given an infinity of time a monkey with a typewriter will eventually write the works of Shakespeare and it also follows that the same monkey will also write something as good as Shakespeare but different.
Anyway a few times recently, although possibly not in this one a couplet has seemed to pop out.
Anyway the light lunch at Isaura’s a useful discovery this, and I have just checked and Trip Advisor concurs see http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g503900-d5430154-Reviews-Isaura_s_Fine_Food-Deal_Kent_England.html#REVIEWS
Here are the books we bought on the way round Deal, I couldn’t resist the Leggo Bible, Lolita for some reason as a favourite with foreign students, I never have enough on military transport to the Jeep book was a good find, and two Shire Albums, something I am selling more than I am buying at the moment.
On the local news front, fortunately it looks like the asset disposal of Pierremont Hall Broadstairs is going to go through with Broadstairs Town Council’s bid for it as a community asset likely to be accepted. Of course the snag here is Ramsgate as ever the poor relation doesn’t really have a public building of a size related to the size of Ramsgate as TDC have sold them all off to the private sector.
