Matisse: Cut Outs - Tate Modern

This was open all night last night because it is the last weekend/popularity so I went at 6am. It was glorious. Space to look at leisure and just wonderful.

The colours and the energy and the joy in the cut outs made me so happy.

Making Colour - National Gallery

I hadn't thought about how paint colours were made...very interesting to see how pigments were developed, illustrated by paintings and their use of colour. Favourite bit was history of blue. Historically, ground lapis lazuli was the best way to get blue!
