Turner…February 2020

Our Saturday workshop brief was to paint in the style of Joseph Mallord William Turner, the English Romantic painter, printmaker and watercolourist.

He is known for his expressive colourisations, imaginative landscapes and turbulent, often violent marine paintings.

Some of us worked from our own photos, a few of which were places that Turner had painted, while others copied his paintings trying to emulate his brushstrokes and colours. Amongst the mediums we used were pastel, watercolour, acrylic and water mixeable oils. Perhaps because we were trying to paint loosely and freely many of us managed to complete two paintings.

A few of us painted independently of the Turner workshop
