Last weekend i went on a trip to the Tate Britain to see the Turner Prize retro, i enjoyed Anish Kapoor big blue things and Grayson Perry's ceramics which were mesmerising.
But as usual Turner is the man for me, i was taken by this Turner watercolour 'Blue Rigi' it is so beautiful it moved me to tears. The Turner watercolour exhibition is really interesting, there is a room where you can do your own Turner drawing but me and my mate Sylvia were intrigued by the display of watercolour samples. They had a map of Europe and where Turner had visited and the colour palette he had used in each region. I was interested to see that he used lots of different pinks in Paris, i always think Paris looks pink.
If you had to choose a colour palette for your home town what would you use?
