Painting of Margate Harbour Arm from Turner Contemporary Piazza

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.

  1. More Books Michael? I am hoping it will warm up so I can get out in the wheelchair. Hope you enjoyed your trip Margate.

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
