The first - the last page of my small sketchbook - was of Turner's self-portrait - see Turner finished my sketchbook
The one below in my big sketchbook was generated by watching the BBC programme This Green and Pleasant Land and generated this post yesterday A view of Box Hill, Surrey and English landscape painting on The Art of the Landscape - about the landscape below.

After walking round the galleries (fascinating to find Damien Hirst has been consigned to the most inaccessible one!) I went for a cup of tea in the Friends Room. I've never been very fond of the Friends Room at Tate Britain and I worked out why as I sat doing my last sketch of the day.
There are absolutely no pictures on the wall. It's a total blank canvas of white washed walls and window.
