|Three little maids from school at Tate Britain - Ruth, Mark and Sara|
It was thought provoking and provided a great opportunity to appreciate the importance of composition in artwork.
We had a preview, in passing, of a giant wooden structure which took up the entire courtyard of Chelsea School of Art (right beside Tate Britain), which was part of London Design Week.
|One of the things I love about London is the flower stall - always an uplifting burst of colour. This one was on Bermondsey High Street SE1|
|A cloudy afternoon but still interesting|
|Students lunching! Ruth, Joanna, Dawn, Indya, me, Mark, Nisa and Sara|
|The weather brightening up, for my walk along the South Bank.|
|The Laughing Cavalier - well, he didn't look to me like he thought it was THAT funny, but an amazing painting.|
|Loved this motorbike with a Sidecar coffee bar!|
|Creativity comes in many forms!|

If you don't have good galleries in your local area, it's so worth making the effort to get to a city. While it's impossible to see everything in just a day or two, it's amazing how much you can cram in - two galleries can be enough in one day. The payoff is a connection with history, the opportunity for reflection and contextualising, for admiring many things and perhaps not liking others.
I encourage you to get going!
