This painting of Canterbury Cathedral took about an hour. Size S Pitt Pen, and the washes are mainly Napels yellow, Paynes grey, Chrome orange and brown madder, W&N arist's quality. My thanks to the charming and friendly staff at http://cafemauresque.co.uk/ and of course for the fantastic view of the cathedral from their outside seating.If you click on the photo below to expand it you will see how the cathedral dominates this view
I have to admit that since I have been doing these sketches the positioning of public seats that actually face good views has become a real issue, a prime example being the cathedral, here in Ramsgate I would say the most iconic view would be of the red brick arches synonymous with Ramsgate, and yet I don’t think there is a public seat facing them.
This painting of Canterbury Cathedral Gate took about half an hour. Size S Pitt Pen, and the washes are mainly Napels yellow, Paynes grey, brown madder and yellow ochre. W&N arist's quality. just cheated and put a wash on the one of the cathedral gate
