A few Thanet pictures a minor Manston update and trouble with a toybox from the 1300s
First an eclectic batch of Thanet pictures
Next RiverOak Investments the Manston CPO people who want to build an airfright hub at Manston with night flights have probably metamorphosed into RSP with a nice new website at http://www.rsp.co.uk/
There is however the possibility that this is some sort of internet scam as I tried to check this with The Department For Transport who told me that they haven’t been informed of any change of company, so who knows?
As ardent blog followers will know I have been doing some watercolour sketches of Canterbury Cathedral, I probably rather unwisely thought I would have a go at the chapter house which has a carved wooden ceiling made in the late 1300s
In terms of fairly demanding ceilings to sketch this one is some where near the top of the scale, after trying I found I just couldn’t do it.
Then today I remembered the little toy wooden tiles I used to play with when I was a child, which hold the key to this pattern.
So while working in my bookshop I produced a preparatory sketch, I hope now I will be able to tackle the real thing.
For dedicated followers of the bookshop here are the pictures of the books that went away http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/doctor-who-in-bookshop.html
