The National Gallery

Monday last week I checked out the National Gallery. The paintings inspired me to get outside and start taking photos again. The lighting and composition of some of the pictures really drew the eye. One that springs to mind is a tutor demonstrating vacuum to a family by candlelight. The light on the faces of the family and the surrounding gloom really draws the eye to consider each of their faces.

Not only were the paintings great to see, the National Gallery building itself was gorgeously decorated inside. Large domes of frosted glass top the galleries, letting in the maximum of natural light to view the paintings.
