A bit of a ramble about Manston, Ramsgate Maritime Museum and watercolour painting
The pictures of Ramsgate should enlarge if you click on them
At the moment i am focused on the maritime museum, clockhouse wosisname
this is pretty much because I periodically have breakfast in in Wetherspoons and paint the view above out the window there.
this morning it was this painting I was doing
I painted some of the houses on the cliff top from the left and this morning some from the right, the issue being. Will they join up in the middle?
Fancy guessing the date of this picture?
Anyway I suppose you know that Thanet has two MPs and that one of the MPs Sir Roger Gale has what they call a safe seat, well it seems this is ll going to change and maybe at the next general election Thanet may only have one MP and the seat may not be a safe one.
Nothing to do with this at all, but today Roger seems to have announced further Manston DCO delays due to his concerns about people living under the flight path of the airfreight hub. I do hope there wasn't any investment in RSP involved.
It's a funny old world.
Note the broken and missing slates on the clockhouse maritime museum wosisname
