The Royal Academy: no queues at lunchtime
So I'm not all that sure what these people were filming:
London was, as usual, busy. But the RA wasn't very. Apparently there had been long queues of hopeful artists in the morning, but by the time I arrived, the queues had gone. I went straight in, removed the cardboard and pipe lagging protecting my painting (using a pair of borrowed scissors), handed the painting to the helpful staff, and left, exchanging a few words with another artist who left at the same time.
Then I went to the Science Museum, to meet up with the rest of my family.
