A Quick Visit to Tate Britain

I went to see the Barbara Hepworth exhibition at the Tate today.

I arrived early and had 45 minutes to kill. One of the things I love about the Tate is the sense of familiarity and yet they move the pictures around so you see them afresh.

I spent most of my time in the Modern British galleries looking at Victor Passmore, Evelyn Dunbar, Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud.

A new challenge I have set myself is to try to work out what palette each artist has used.

Kitaj and Patrick Heron were particularly pleasing though my photos don’t seem to have captured the colours.
