Bagpuss and stuff today in Canterbury + a few old Thanet pictures

I painted a bit more of my watercolour of the martyrdom in Canterbury Cathedral.

 various attempts to photograph what I am trying to paint were not really very successful 
 I realise now, having got back to Ramsgate, that using the width of the letterbox format, uased sideways above could have improved the panoramas below

After this I encountered what appeared to be an exhibition focused on one of my literary heroes Bagpuss, the photography went a bit critical at this point, all at the bottom of the post for any like minded.

On to Chocolate Cafe 

  Started sketching out the window until the sun came round and shone in my eyes, tried wearing sunglasses which didn't work very well but produced some interesting window effects.

so painted the person sitting in Pork & Co.

 This is Margate Station

 And these two apparently Margate harbour

Found a few local transport related picture for my blog followers to look at 

Back to work in the bookshop tomorrow having take two days off this is the link to the books that went out

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.
