A couple of weeks ago, I caught a bus to Canberra to see my friend, A, and to visit the “Turner From the Tate” exhibition at National Gallery of Australia.
It blew my mind.
The grand scale of some of his paintings, to physically see his art box and his palette, to have a glimpse of a few of his 300 sketchbooks and the colours he used in his paintings – were so inspiring.
