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.
