A few Margate photos and possible ramble.

Just looked at my bookshop’s blog and some pretty good stuff went out on Saturday, here is the link for anyone interested  

Sunday today, a bit more painting in the cathedral, so photos of the pages from my sketchbook, this is just personal weblog stuff but if I don’t write it down I can’t find it in the future.

One fairly ordinary watercolour painted from underneath Bell Harry Tower inside Canterbury Cathedral looking up the north nave transept on the right of the picture and down the nave on the left. OK it’s a bit squiff in terms of verticals, but basically progressing fairly ok.

This other watercolour of Canterbury Cathedral Chancel seems to me to have gone bonkers, I’m not sure if it’s finished yet or what to do with it, I certainly didn’t get the result I intended, one to put on the wall for a bit and think about perhaps.

My alma mater is in the news again and not so good again. This week some of the shocking stories will be highlighted in a special investigation on the BBC’s Panorama.

Painting wise it’s about time the weather warmed up enough to paint outside comfortably, of course this bring up the tricky question of where and what to paint. One public seat in Ramsgate facing the brick arches or the café culture from the cross wall wouldn’t go amiss.

  1. Margate has been a great attraction for many years! If only TDC could refurb the whole damned place, I know there is a lot of money to be made.


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.
