London Trip

Yesterday was the first day of the International Art Exhibition held in the Royal College of Art.I am subscribed toAffordable Art Fairs and was sent free tickets so I had no excuse not to go.I went with my friend Tracy and her daughter. The paintings  on display were all kinds of media and styles ,sizes and the highlights were work byTracy Emin,Damien Hurst and some other prominent English artists.There were also sculptures,my favourite being some horses made out of drift wood, I don't know what happened to my camera,the photos did not come out.I went seeking inspiration but I ended up just soaking in the atmosphere and enjoying each painting I saw.
After the exhibition we stopped off at our favourite place.....Camden Lock Market.I always love the vibes in this place,there's lovely food from all corners of the world and its such an arty place.The people are always so pleasant and just happy to be there.

  6. We found a very cheap art shop behind the Odeon Leicester sq. So after that we were laden with heavy bags! Next time out comes the trolley!
    Sorry I know I walked your legs off! What a great exhibition, some really brilliant pieces of art, but some real doozies too!
