 The gallery have just published pictures on their website, of some of the Turners in the Turner Contemporary that are on display at the moment.

 This part of their website seems to owe much to the nitrousoxide school of web publishing in as much as the pictures come and go as you are looking at them, so I have copied them to this blog and also on a conventional webpage here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/1011/id4.htm

 I have put them up in different sizes as that is the way the gallery has published them, four of them are particularly important to local people as they are pictures of Thanet.

With the watercolours of Thanet I reckon the palate is, Indian ink, sepia ink, yellow ochre, rose madder, cobalt blue and a pencil.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
