Here is the pen and watercolour sketch drawn in the Turner Contemporary Margate café
As you see they produce an artist’s lunch that you can eat while sketching
Having just viewed the main exhibition “Self” which is self portraits all I really wanted to do was sketch people and as two sides of the café there are glass the light is very good.
The newest of the exhibitions: “Year of Mexico in the UK” by Carlos Amorales is basically cymbals, or perhaps symbols – I don’t know enough about contemporary art to tell – on coat hangers. Children are randomly issued with drumsticks (cymbal mallets) and adults are randomly issued with earplugs, as the symbols become cymbals to the children. I kept my earplugs in which made me feel a bit like a fish in a fish tank. Something I took into the glass walled café.
