Turner’s paintings at The Turner Contemporary

 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
 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.




  1. Are there any copyright issues here?????

  2. I could have doubled for Turners self portrait until I had my haircut this week.


Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
