A few pictures of Margate and the Turner Contemporary possible Sunday Ramble

Here is the link to the photos being outside in warm sunshine was a bit of a shock to the system. 

We got to Margate after lunch and I had another look at the exhibits in the Turner Contemporary, I am not very keen on the current exhibitions there and am looking forward to future exhibitions.

There is a rumour going around that they are negotiating an exhibition of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci. I may have to camp outside if they do.
I decided. Wrongly. It would be too cold to sketch outside and got a pot of tea in the gallery’s café, started to sketch the new step sea defences, almost immediately I started to get too hot and as you see the sketch wasn’t going well.

Then a couple of sketches of the people inside and outside the café, many of these people have a bit of a look to them, there is a word for this look, on the tip of my tongue. 

Ah yes got it, I first discovered this meaning of this word in The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13¾ the word is intellectual.

 Anyway my guess is that no one is going to get too stroppy about being drawn at an art gallery, fortunately everyone ignored me and I nailed a few likenesses.

Ramble on here later perhaps 

The temptation in the gallery at the moment is the Weebles, I mean if you give one a push does to roll back the right way up?


  1. Perhaps they have a look of consternation in anticipation of Benefits Cap Day (Today)

    Your opening photo should be in a Masonic caption competition. Made me smile.

    1. Presumably something to do with degrees, Lyndon?
