Turned on by Turner!
Back to the practice of color mixing from the Living Colors book. Turner's palette totally turned me on. I fell in love with every color I mixed. While I do not always enjoy the subject of his paintings, I always love Turner's colors. Click here to see what I mean.
After mixing these gorgeous colors, I decided that I wanted to paint with them and see what happened. Not copying Turner's painting, but using his palette to paint my own painting. I'm not sure that it's really ORIGINAL in the cleanest sense of the word, to paint with Turner's colors, but it was grand!
And now, for some fitting music ...
