Art is not what you see...

As an artistic person in general, I couldn't go to the Tate Britain (and on a lovely sunny day, too, as you can see!) and not write about it. Now, you may or may not like London, and if you don't, you may not enjoy this blog... (unless I can convert you to loving, or at least liking, London.) You may also like or dislike art. If you dislike both London and art... errrr... sorry!!
If you like at least one variable, yay you! And if you enjoy both... you truly have taste.
Now, if you do go to the Tate Britain anytime soon, be sure to check the Romatics Exhibition. Especially the Turner paintings, they will make you dream and wonder, they will strike you with awe, and you will most probably be even more amazed at the talent he showed at a young age. And wow, does his style change. It is fantastic to see pieces develop like that. If you enjoy, get postcards. Or posters. Or both!! And take many photos. Just turn off the flash and be discreet. I managed! ;) Art isn't just about copying what you see, but interpreting it and painting with feeling.
