Old Ramsgate photos, the Buffs Chapel makeover and a bit more painting in the cathedral



My bookshop closed today and although hoping to be able to paint outside the weather wasn’t up to it, I spent a fair amount of time in the cathedral. Most of it doing preparatory sketches for what I hope will be a reasonable watercolour of the chancel.







The Buffs Chapel has had a really good clean up and the flags have been restored



Right at the end of the day I did a bit more on my watercolour from the stone seat under Bell Harry of. What? Well the bit on the right is in front of me looking you the nave’s north transept, the pillar just left of the middle is about 20 feet away from me but about seventy feet high and on the left of that is the view looking down the north side on the nave, the pillar on the far left is the side of the arch behind me.

Oh and click here for the newly arrived books in the bookshop here in Ramsgate

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.
