Dimmey's is a century old landmark in Richmond. It is being developed into a supermarket and appartments. It's a hertitage listed building, and until recently the shop stocked super cheap products.
I found a nice spot sketching from a cafe called 'Meatballs'. Interestingly the clock doesn't work. The hands are set to midday, and there are no numerals on the face, instead it reads 'D I M M E Y S S T O R E'
We met at 1pm to share... and as you can see from the collection of books below I hadn't started painting when we met. The globe/dome on top of the clock has these wonderful turquoise colours. Does anyone know those why green/turquoise domes look that way? (Is it something to do with copper?)
