Two pen and watercolour sketches in Canterbury of The Beaney and St Mary Magdalene.

Here is the pen and watercolour sketch of The Beaney House Of Art & Knowledge from The County Hotel, well actually I think it’s now called ABode

and here is the sketch of St Mary Magdalene from Elsie Mo’s, well actually only the tower of St Mary Magdalene which was built in 1503 the rest of the church was pulled down in 1871 ‘cause it wos a derry.

As you can see a tricky view from Elsie Mo's due to the acute angle and the windows, I think about two hours sketching on this one.

the smallest meal I could find there, Cowgirl Burger £8.95 + coffee £2.20 very good, but too much food for a weekday lunch (I am trying to get thinner after Christmas) my wife had toast and jam £1 and a $5 shake which was £5.

Here is the view of The Beaney from, The County, which I think has even been The Michael Cain and named after one of the celebrity cooks, my cup of coffee (very good) there was over £3, as the parking was running out I only got about an hour sketching, so will endeavour to return and finish it off.

We also bought quite a lot of books for my bookshop in Ramsgate, so a fairly busy day off.

Anyway here is a question for blog readers, if you find a restaurant or café with a view that will stand a sketch or two in this area (East Kent) can you please let me know?
