I've been to the Fitzwilliam Museum again this morning to see the Darwin exhibition and make some notes. I also went mad and bought the catologue, which was quite expensive. I was looking particularly at his ideas about camaflague and animals, which has given me some starting points for another painting (see my last blog)
I have also arranged to go to Peacocks Tearooms next week to do a watercolour study of a typical afternoon tea. This is for my next painting about two great aunts and what they got up to in the 2nd world war (more of that, later) With an eye to some publicity for TED CONEY'S FAMILY PORTRAITS I have arranged for the press to come and take a photo, so hope the painting works out OK!!
Best Wishes Ted
