John Constable

No art from me tonight. Instead, I suggest you go and check out the John Constable paintings up at artist Lindsay Mitchell's blog to wipe that image of Nasrallah from your retina.

If you really study a Constable, ignoring the familiar chocolate box subjects, you can see what people like Turner got from such things as his wildly turbulent cloudscapes.

Check him out at the Te Papa exhibition if you're in Helengrad. Might as well get some use from the money you've spent on the place.
