Jai Llewellyn / William Turner

William Turner
Sky study
watercolour on paper
29 x 43,7 cm

The first artwork I really 'experienced', face to face, was a Turner in The National Gallery, London. I was immediately struck by the paint. The expression and emotional content seemed to exceed any narrative and it was then I realised the potential power of painting. Many years later I found an affinity with Turner's watercolours and I often have to remind myself of their sensitivity and simplicity.
