The photos are slightly blurred, but my mum took them outside the Tate Britain and she's not used to my camera (and it doesn't do what I want at the best of times). Anyway this is about as much colour blocking as I'll be partaking in- red jeans and lilac nails. I've had the jeans for about 4 years and I can tell- it was a struggle to button them up!
The Watercolour exhibition was interesting although both me and my mother didn't find that many works that we really loved as we're not too keen on the very modern abstract stuff. But I love how before cameras were widespread, watercolourists were able to show the world new species of plants and annimals and of course paint landscapes of exotic countries.
These were some of my favourites, the first two by JMW Turner (The Scarlet Sunset and The Blue Rigi), the last Constable's the Haywain (thank you Caitlin Rose :). It did inspire me to start painting again and I bought some paper, although I haven't found a subject to paint yet...
We ended up ambling along towards Big Ben and the Marathon. I was there last year with Amnesty International, cheering on our runners and speaking to them after etc. I love the atmosphere there- must be one of the only days in London where strangers talk to each other, smile and encourage each other. I find it heart warming how people watching on the sidelines call out people's names when they're written on their tops, telling them how well they're doing and that they're nearly, nearly there..
