Turner Inspired.

TheTurner Exhibition @ The National Gallery is a delight.

It is a compact exhibition that can easily be done in an hour.

The watercolours show Turner’s unique skill in the ability to use bands of colour.

A close view shows how he drew his brush across the page.

When you stand back these colour combinations produce a superb effect.

This is seen in pictures such as “An industrial town at sunset” or “Venice”.

How will I use this in garden design?

Plants can be grouped together to form bands of colour.

The overall effect of using bands of colour should then be viewed from a distance as well.

If I could create something that reflects this wonderful technique I would be very glad.
