The Sandwich watercolour sketch with No Name

The life of a secondhand bookseller involves looking at lots of books in different places, today it was the town’s of Deal and Sandwich, neither of which have general secondhand bookshops any longer.

I finished around half one in Sandwich, the Le Bistro over the No Name shop has about six tables next to upstairs windows all of which have reasonable views, the sketch took about an hour and has some issues with perspective I think.

I should have taken a reference picture, but forgot so I can’t tell exactly what I did wrong although photos don’t help as much as you might expect with painting things from life.

Post a Comment

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.
