A tale of two Margates or a watercolour with a bad case of tides, and some Lambrettas.

I arrived at Margate around lunchtime today, sat down to lunch in Turner Contemporary art gallery café and started working on the wrong watercolour.

I have two watercolours that I am in the process of painting from this window


this one for when the tide is in note the bit of boat left of left lamppost sunk that should have been on the painting below only.


and this one for when the tide is out



Lunch – bacon sos, egg and chips, soon had me sorted and I changed the picture in progress.

Margate Meltdown on Monday, typical bank holiday weather forecast, wing blowing directly from the north at 45 mph and rain. I was more of a rocker than a mod, various B.S.As B33, C12, A10 and Norton Wideline 88 if you speak biker. But today in Margate it was the 50s and 60s Lambrettas that caught my eye.  















While I was away work continued in my bookshop, here is the link to the pictures of the books that went out on the shelves today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/woodturning-books-in-bookshop.html

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.
