Forgot to mention before. I had a great afternoon at The ‘Making Colour’ Exhibition (National Gallery – £8) and the BP Portrait Prize Winners Exhibition (National Portrait Gallery – FREE) a week ago with my younger daughter and a friend. Very thought provoking stuff if you are at all arty; and followed with a visit to the Portrait Gallery next door had you really thinking about colour in practice especially the winner ‘Man with a Plaid Blanket’ which was like a kind of summary of the ‘Making Colour’ Exhibition.
‘Making Colour’ finishes 7th September and BP Portrait Prize Exhibition finishes 21st September. Between the 2 exhibitions we had lunch at the handily placed, enormous, Pret-a-manger next door.
