Gunboats and dispatch riders at Ramsgate Harbour, a bit more watercolour sketching in The Belgian Café.

First the gunboat pictures last night and this morning.


 Then the dispatch rider and 1940s B.S.A. M20, a couple of lovely looking ladies.
Then it was on to The Belgian Cafe for breakfast and a bit more work on my watercolour sketch.

 Bit of rubbing out with sponge here as the lady in question only had the very top of her head painted and today had put her hair up.

 Tricky business painting people from life, for one thing, unlike buildings the move about. This is not like painting the girl in A Bar at the Folies-Bergère where I assume she posed over the champagne and oranges for ages, so a likeness if I'm lucky.

 Finally this rather strange picture, as I had to take my daughters shopping in Canterbury this afternoon, I have an allergy to shopping so painted a picture and ate cake.
