The big splodge – painting in Margate – and some pictures of old Thanet buses, a ramble.

Yawn, I have been driving round Kent for most of today buying books for my bookshop and fortunately some for me too, I didn’t get as many as I usually do and arrived in Margate for a late lunch and to do some more to my sketch from Turner Contemporary.

It was going fairly well when I had big black splodge syndrome in the middle of the painting, it’s on very poor quality paper so I don’t really know if there is any way forward apart from starting again.

I have been painting small faces again, which is the difficult end of watercolour, but I do eventually hope to develop some sort of style in painting and think this is part of it.

I priced a couple of Kent bus books which are now out on the shelves and have added photos to the Thanet bits.
