From Tate Modern to Tate Britain to see “Painting with Light; Art and Photography from the Pre-Rahaelites to the Modern Age".
An interesting exhibition exploring the influences of painters on photography…. and then the influence of photography on painting.
With some spare time before I headed off to Buckingham Palace I took myself around the Tudors and Turner.
I love this painting of Elizabeth I in her late twenties.
But its the details of the paintings I truly love.
The depiction of embroidery in paint, which one day I hope to use as inspiration to make embroidered work.
A little like the exhibition I saw where one art form influences the next and then vice versa.
I like the idea of that.
Saturday morning was a great time to visit.
Virtually empty galleries.
