Sorbetto the Ramsgate ice cream parlour and a couple of sketches around the harbour today.

Going for the maximum of street cred today, this involved wearing socks and sandals and arming myself with a wheelie trolley containing a folding chair and a blow up cushion I skived of to the harbour and started to sketch the picture above.

I didn’t get finished as my patch of shade ran out and I doubt I will bother as aspects seem to have gone a bit pear shaped.

Anyway a few progress pictures which may give a hint as to why things went wrong, but I am determined to master watercolour without pencil guidelines.     

Later I went out with just a pen and pad, much easier and very much faster.

Sorbetto is progressing fast and is already busy, I haven’t tried it yet

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.
