A quick watercolour sketch of Ramsgate lift from the Pavilion, photo of a couple of fishing smacks on the crosswall and out and about photos
I skived off late this afternoon to the Pav for a bit of sketching
Here is a photo for any aspiring art critics, at the moment having somewhere with the sun mostly behind me and a reasonably comfortable chair within a short walk from the bookshop is a temptation I can't resist. Come the winter I don't think there is anywhere really practicable, so less sketching.
I would guess this picture of Ramsgate fishing smacks tied up at the crosswall dates from around 1900.
The post Pav perambulation was fairly brief
as you see the light was going
Worth it however to see this James Handyvan that dates from around 1930
