Turner Contemporary Margate, the all day breakfast and of course pictures at the exhibition, possible ramble.

Having had a few issues with the change of menu at Turner Contemporary’s Café I can report the reintroduction and improvement of the all day breakfast in Margate with the stunning view.


I am a bit of a fan of Michael Armitage who does paintings based on the works of the French impressionists. I have to fess up that it really was copying Renoir sketches that taught me about drawing figures and started an interest in the French impressionists. Later seeing Magritte’s – for want of a better word, parodies of some Renoir’s paintings made me predisposed to appreciate Michael Armitage.


I wasn’t up to much painting being a bit wilted by the recent hot nites, knights or nights, drowsy or something. A couple of what you may kindly consider preparatory sketches from the café.

One done while I realised I could have arrived earlier and had toast, marmalade and view and another with the sos, bacon, egg and chips, discreetly presented as Turner Hash and looking healthy. During the interval I went into Margate and bought some bus books for my bookshop – a busman’s holiday?

The pictures here are from my mobile phone a bit unsorted as still a bit wilted from the heat which appears to have subsided.
