Here is the watercolour painting of Margate Lighthouse from Turner Contemporary Gallery Cafe
I worked on this bit adding detail, more coats of paint, layers if you like.
The Café at Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate, not only has a decent view
But today they excelled themselves my ploughman’s lunch was one of the best I have ever had anywhere stilton and brie with quince jelly and mango chutney.
As the aging process progresses I no longer work a five day week most weeks and now take Saturday off, I don’t think holidays happen to independent English booksellers I last had one in about 1990.
Anyway I started off in the Fredricks Tea Room in part of The Carlton Cinema building in Westgate-on-Sea, toast marmalade coffee and a sketch.
The grand finale of the day was when Turner Contemporary Gallery Café managed to produce as part of their coffee and cake deal, chocolate cake and 2 PG Tips teabags in a teapot, poetry in motion.
P.S. here is last night's painting in the Belgian Cafe.
P.P.S. people are always asking me what type of books I buy, the answer is – of course – the type I sell, here are the photos of the books that went on the shelves in my bookshop today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/02/books.html and I would say working your way through the bookshop blog is a fair indicator of the type of books I buy.
