Studio 365: Day 193

Day 193 i

Lessons from the Great Masters Day 9, part 1 – 12.7.15

Day 193 iv

I have been looking forward to this chapter, entitled Joseph Mallord William Turner: colour harmony, ever since I received the book in the mail.

Day 193 v

Turner is perhaps the greatest master of watercolour painting the world has known. His work has inspired me ever since I first saw his paintings in the Tate Gallery in London as a young boy. His mastery of light, colour, landscape, sky, mystery and atmosphere are second to none. He was a man ahead of his time; the first of the impressionists.

Day 193 ii

These exercises are a revelation and make this a wonderful journey to be on; more tomorrow.
