Finally made it...Hockney Exhibition

Since its opening, I have been meaning to book and go to the Hockney exhibition, but by the time I finally got around to it, it was sold out. So yesterday I decided to brave a trip to the Royal Academy and hope and pray the queue wasn't too horrific.

We made it. And we weren't disappointed at all! The exhibition was luminous, the colours bright, the seasons so beautifully illustrated. Nature was captured in all its glory in Hockney's vibrant style.

The 'Spring' room, the centre of the exhibition, was mesmarising with bold pictures created using an iPad, surely the next artistic medium.

It was truly inspiring and uplifting and certainly worth the visit - but always take a buggy (and if you don't have one, borrow a baby and buggy for the day). They let you bypass the queue (and it is quite a queue) and go straight in.

The David Hockney Exhibition is on at the Royal Academy of Arts, Piccadilly until 9 April 2012. Tickets £16
