Sunday, a day off, lunch at Quex Barn and a sketch, photos of the new exhibits at The Turner Contemporary

Art, food, sunshine, altogether a good day off today.
This is the sketch from Quex Barn, I didn’t really finish it as there wasn’t time, but I hope it give a bit of the feel of the place, pot of tea, apple juice and two steak sarnies about £18 inc a tip.

It should also be noted that they have an excellent farm shop, as you may be able to see from the pictures.

On to the Turner Contemporary, I particularly enjoyed the John Downton Awards exhibition of young Kent artists, this picture “Broken Bowl” by Laura Simmons which I am pretty sure is oil on canvas, was my favourite. I have always been interested in the area where the eye is deceived, in this case the shine on the pottery.

I was please to find that nearly all of the exhibits were working today, including the one with the typewriter.

Here is the link to the first batch of photos from my phone

I hope you can see them I am still working on this cloud computing lark.

I don't see this interesting many people but I have added Winsor red to my travel painting box

Got a couple of the blues the wrong way round, but you get the general idea.

The trick here is not so much about being clever at mixing up the right colour as being ble to do it very fast without much water.

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.
