First the old pictures of Ramsgate
this is getting small tree out of the 1860 cliff facade in Ramsgate
I have been doing some more to my watercolour paining of the inside of Canterbury Cathedral from under Bell Harry Tower, sorry it’s a bit of a spot the difference that probably doesn’t interest most readers, but if I don’t record it online I will never be able to find it again.
I’ve mostly been working on this bit today. Apart from a bit of red and blue for the windows the paint is all Naples Yellow (a bit like magnolia in house paint) ivory black (which is a euphemism for burnt ground bones) and zinc white.
I have discovered that a proper artist would use better colours, I took advice and my big paintbox.
This contains lots of paints I never use, but some I ought to, the little one in the foreground contains the ones I actually use - becase it fits in my pocket.
in practice there was only room fo me and the little one
This is what they call a reference shot, I think and theae are progress photos https://goo.gl/photos/7cRNWEzDJxUeNxVM9
