Picturing Ramsgate

Another four old coloured postcards, not perhaps the best bit of copying, sorry about that

Only one said anything on the back, the one with the tram and around 1907 seems about right to me.

One of those days when I didn’t get much done today.

I did go to Enoteca café in Ramsgate with the intention of doing something to my sketch but didn’t seem to have what it takes.

I did a couple of quick sketches instead, experimenting with the shapes and perspective I suppose.

This one where I just couldn’t seem to fit the background into the window, but I did seem to getting somewhere towards painting the curved white ceiling.

After that I turned round and had a go looking up the tunnel as it were, with pen and wash.

Painting and drawing interiors is a tricky business and unusually shaped ones well the camera lies and so does the brush.

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.
