Here is the watercolour painting of Margate Harbour Arm, lighthouse and The Droit House from Turner Contemporary Piazza.
Due to the size of the piece of paper A4 and the time available, about an hour, I had to scrunch things up a bit, I think I have pretty much mastered the areas of little people but need to improve on the areas of little cars. However I sort of thought that if you are going to scrunch up a view then perhaps the view should look a bit scrunched up, so I have mixed feeling about whether the painting worked or not. Anyway next week TC is showing Provincial Punk the idea of which, the artist Grayson Perry, says is oxymoron, so perhaps it is time I had a change of style. Iam not really sure which bit of the area outside TC is the bit they call the pizza, sorry piazza, the painting was done outside the café so may actually be the mezzanine as it’s up some steps, should that be steppes, and the main gallery (closed) is up some more steps.
Here is the photo for the art critics out there.
I bought a few books in Margate including one on the famous lifeboatman Henry Blogg, which may give a moment of thought to bloggers everywhere.
Primark is looking rather sad, but my children managed to find what they were looking for in Peacocks, which is good all-round as watercolours of WC are less interesting for me to paint and presumably for people to look at.
