All the fun of the fair in Ramsgate and I start paining St Anselm's Chapel in Canterbury Cathedral

A few out and about pictures in Ramsgate this evening, Harbour Parade is much busier than usual because of the music and funfair. This does beg the question of how much busier Ramsgate would be if Pleasurama was still operating and further questions about local taxation subsidising amusements.

Here is the link to the rest of the rest of the pictures

It’s a similar problem to the lack of High Street shops, most severe I think in Margate, which has become a town where it is difficult to get younger people to go to unless the weather is good and very difficult to get them to go to in winter.

Up until Primark closed it was just about an all year family destination, meaning I could take my children with me when I wanted to sketch there in the winter.

I went to Canterbury today, had a wander around the cathedral looking for somewhere to start another painting, eventually asked some of the people who work there and have started to have a go at St Anselm's Chapel.

I also took some photos of the chapel, here is the link

I won’t go into the history of this as there is plenty online, but I think it has solved my ongoing problem of somewhere to paint, where there is a seat and the light is mostly coming from behind me.
