A bit more progress with the Canterbury Chocolate Café reflections watercolour painting.
With the sun out I did manage to photograph what I have been trying to paint in Canterbury the last few Sunday afternoons, although what the camera sees is very different to what you can actually see with your eyes from this view.
I didn’t get a lot done today as got a bit distracted by the food.
The other interesting bit of Canterbury info is the Waterstones bookshop in St Margaret’s Street is to close and the Rose Lane branch will go back to three floors as it was when it was Ottakers Bookshop.
As far as I can see this will reduce the amount of space general bookshop space in Canterbury to about a third of what it was, there is an irony here as my bookshop in Ramsgate is much busier than it has been for years.
The way I measure general bookshops I would say in terms of range, particularly with literary fiction, art, transport and history, Waterstones in St Margaret’s Street Canterbury is the closest to my bookshop here in Ramsgate among the bookshops in east Kent. I have to say that this is not good news for retail bookselling in this area.
