A few pen and ink sketches of Broadstairs today.

I have to admit to skiving off from my bookshop today and letting the other people who work there get on with it.

The main objective being to finish off the sketch I started on Thursday.

Here it is, unfortunately no people on the beach as it was too windy, so I will probably go back and add some.

The next two sketches are from the new Costa Coffee which has an upstairs, eliminating the problem of someone parking in front of the window while I am trying to sketch.

Both of these are drawings are looking down Albion Street at the Albion Hotel, Posillipo Italian Restaurant, Prezzo Restaurant and so on, I may go back and colour it in.

Here is a photo for the art critics.

I did buy a reasonable local book for my bookshop which more than paid for lunch and the bus fair £2.30 it would have been cheaper to drive, which is stupid, anyway the book Memorials of the Goodwin Sands, here is the link to some sample pages.


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.
