A few old Ramsgate pictures and spot the difference with the Watercolour painting inside Canterbury Cathedral.
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
