Christmas card Mk1

Ramsgate Christmas card a first attempt  

I am working on Ramsgate Christmas Card Mk II now everything has quietened down here – children during the Christmas hols are inclined towards excitement – frankly with watercolour anything can happen.

The picture on the left is the reference from my sketchbook that I am using and the one on the right the work in progress, I guess you can see how wet it is.

Here is the reference sketch for this mornings card, I really don’t like working from photographs, so tend to do rather dull drawings from life when the weather is ok.  

Still at a very wet stage, painting with dark, perhaps, I think it is time to put this on one side to dry for a bit.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. 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.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
