There was also a section with photos of famous artists at work on in thier studios - again very interesting to see the different ways of working. Local artists had been invited to display photographs of their own studios - the variety of spaces people work in is intriguing and reassuring to someone who has only a corner of the conservatory and everything has to be tidied away out of reach of the toddler. I'm hoping that by this time next year I will have at least a corner of the utility room as my very own studio area!
I learnt a lot from this visit but wish I'd taken notes as I went around so I could research some of my favourite pictures in more detail at home. If nothing else it has taught me it is worth taking notes as I go round. REMEMBER TO DO THIS!!!
