We were lucky enough to travel to New York for half term and travel back on the Queen Mary II. Pretty exciting. We had a fantastic time in the Met. Saw more Rembrant's than I have in the last ten years, there was an excellent Cubism exhibition and some wonderful tapestries shown alongside the preparatory sketches for them. We oohed and ahhed over the colours and details. I made a couple of sketches, of course I had to draw a lion outside the NY Public Library. My family were not that keen to visit but as it was such a lovely building the complaints were short lived. As a bonus, there was an exhibition of Turner's prints for me to enjoy.
