A couple of sketches of Herne Bay and Manston and Stone Hill Park and Manston Airport.
you can draw the clock tower at Herne Bay
try to photograph it or just walk away
well it has potential
my first attempt started out too big.
a streetscape from The Pantry is much easier and more relaxed than drawing the clock tower with the traffic whizzing by
The place at Manston, I guess now even what you
call it will get someone’s back up, well the issue, where the owners want to
build Stone Hill Park http://www.stonehillpark.co.uk/
and various people including a lot of the local politicians want TDC to use cpo
powers to buy the land there to turn it into an airfreight hub and aircraft
scrapping facility, has gone into overdrive. I may ramble on here.
