Turner

Well I got to see the Turners before the end of January, and to be honest, I just sat in front of 3 of them. They are all of Venice, and above is a copy of my favourite. I took this photo from a calendar that I bought a few years ago. It doesn't do it justice at all. The whole composition is so amazing and the gondola on the right is just a few brush strokes, but stands out so clearly from the whole painting. That's what I love about Turner. Stand back from it, and it looks like a whole landscape. Go close and you can see how few brushstrokes there actually are. I want to be able to paint like that!
And then I did some cards, and made a tag with this week's flowers :D
