Paint like Turner!


I suppose it is slightly arrogant to say 'Paint like Turner' who can possibly paint like the great man? Certainly not me, however Try to paint like Turner is perfectly reasonable. I have been looking again at how he controls and uses light in his watercolours. I have used similar colors here to those in his famous Blue Rigi which harmonises around blue and yellow/orange
This view is of the ruined Hadleigh Castle near where I live.

Great combination of colours. This is what I like, instead of dabs of various colours which make a picture "kitschig"

Nice colour combination. Much better than dabs of all kinds of colours
