Painting The Royal Albion Hotel in Broadstairs and The Sands Lift in Ramsgate

I started a new pen and watercolour sketch of The Royal Albion Hotel in Broadstairs this morning. 

 one for the art critics
 as you can't paint light on dark with watercolour bits like the writing on the sign have to be painted first and the the dark sign painted around the writing.

 I think I will have to consider more powerful reading glasses.

I had lunch at Candy's aka Tops and did a quick sketch of the lift while I was there

I guess the lift will look a little less uncomfortable when I have gone back and sketched in the cliff and the hou8ses next to it.

Why so much deeper than wide? I sketched the front first and then the writing on the side saying "Lift" a word that proved longer than expected.

  1. So much I could say but I refrain from saying it. Lift is not a L O N G word but I do understand but at least it has a light background.

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.
