Canterbury sketch of La Trappiste from Chocolate, well nothing much.

As you can see from the Canterbury picture I should have started with the paper the other way – portrait instead of landscape – an easy mistake, but then one learns from mistakes.


I also started with pen in the top left corner – should have been paint I think now, wrong shades of green, hand wasn’t in, brain not engaged type of thing, thumb too, one of those days.

Perhaps I will go back and start again with the pad turned round.


As I have already painted this part of the cathedral from upstairs in Chocolate Café, pic above I can probably copy it and fill in this bit at home.


I spent most of the day in Canterbury buying books, this 1865 guide to Folkestone being the star item.


I won’t post up all the books I bought today as they will apper on my bookshop blog http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/ when they get priced and put out in my bookshop here in Ramsgate.

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.
