My day off today, we went to the Works in Ramsgate garden centre, I was hoping the £2.99 sketch pad I use quite a few of would be in the sale, but despite masses of sale notices there didn’t seem to much of sale.
On to Cliftonville as I wanted a couple of artistic bits from Lovelys, most of the shopkeepers I spoke to in Northdown road seemed pretty gloomy and frankly people with social problems seemed to outnumber the ordinary shoppers making it difficult to shop.
A quick visit to The Turner Contemporary to visit the loo revealed that they are having an exhibition changeover so there isn’t much to see there apart from the John Downton Award for Young Artists which is an annual exhibition which encourages and celebrates the creativity of the county’s young artists.
Students, aged 11 - 18, from schools and colleges across Kent are invited to participate and the best examples of their painting and drawing submissions, here are the pictures of the pictures.
As you see it is well worth a look.
Having been inspired we went on to Café G for a light lunch, The Turner Contemporary café no longer seem to provide ordinary plain food, which is a pain as the view is very good.
Anyway inspired by the art of the youf of today I sketched the view from Café G. (Pitt pen size S)
On to Ramsgate where the sun was setting.
I may ramble on and add some more of the pictures when i have cooked supper.
