The Royal Academy: no queues at lunchtime

This is the front of the Royal Academy of Art in London, on Picadilly (which I still think is a strange name for a road). Artists delivering work for possible inclusion in the Summer Exhibition go to the back, two streets away.

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.

  1. Return journey to London planned imminently to collect the painting, as the RA declined it.


Tell me what you think!
