Da Vinci exhibition, National Gallery, London



I went to the sold out Da Vinci exhibition at the National Gallery yesterday!:banana)

Obviously, having not bought the ticket, I had to queue more than 1 1/2hrs in the cold to go in, but it was worth itkewl_glasses

Anyone wishing to go, I suggest warm clothes with a hat, and possibly something to read and a hot drink;)
Also, queue before 3pm, as the museum closes at 6pm. (I started queueing at 2:50pmredface)

Paying extra for the audio guide was well worth it:)

I thought I was going to see 9 painting/drawings by Da Vinci, so I took a lot of time at the beginning, but there was moreshocked_yellow There were 9 major paintings AND lots of sketches, so it was a lot to take in.

Was great though, highly recommendedwaveysmiley
It closes on 5th February 2012.

I haven't been to the National Gallery for ages. But it used to be free!
