Kevin (you know who, don’t make me say the moniker) seems to have taken up oil painting. A strange blue landscape is being painted on the step next to Shepherds Food.

The excellent blog Transpontine has a post about Turner‘s London paintings. It also linked to this painting, shown above, of “View on Lewisham Hill, Looking Up towards a Windmill on Blackheath 1796-7”.
It also shows how completely rural the area was back then! I always find it hard to imagine.
UPDATE: A different kind of windmills were mentioned on this blog a while back.
Interesting article here about how Blackheath should respond to the coming Peak Oil moment. http://transitionwestcombe.blogspot.com/2008/12/transition-westcombe-upcoming-article.html
The montage above is by me – I know it’s not great, just to give a sense of how we may end up!). It is based on a couple of images. The heath image is by Nicobobinus and the turbines are by jespis. Both are creative commons licensed, as is my montage.
