Just looked at my bookshop’s blog and some pretty good stuff went out on Saturday, here is the link for anyone interested http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/live-and-let-die-in-bookshop.html
Sunday today, a bit more painting in the cathedral, so photos of the pages from my sketchbook, this is just personal weblog stuff but if I don’t write it down I can’t find it in the future.
One fairly ordinary watercolour painted from underneath Bell Harry Tower inside Canterbury Cathedral looking up the north nave transept on the right of the picture and down the nave on the left. OK it’s a bit squiff in terms of verticals, but basically progressing fairly ok.
This other watercolour of Canterbury Cathedral Chancel seems to me to have gone bonkers, I’m not sure if it’s finished yet or what to do with it, I certainly didn’t get the result I intended, one to put on the wall for a bit and think about perhaps.
My alma mater is in the news again and not so good again. This week some of the shocking stories will be highlighted in a special investigation on the BBC’s Panorama.
Painting wise it’s about time the weather warmed up enough to paint outside comfortably, of course this bring up the tricky question of where and what to paint. One public seat in Ramsgate facing the brick arches or the café culture from the cross wall wouldn’t go amiss.
