The Tate’s Work of the Week this week is a Turner. Those of my more frequent readers among you may recognise this as a recurrent theme in my art posts, so I just had to share it.
What I find so moving about Turner is the character that he gives to the sky. In this painting, the sun draws your eye to the vastness of the sky, offsetting the detail of the foreground with a beautifully calming effect. I also quite like its slightly surreal yellow colour, almost as though the brightness of the sun is warming the whole landscape.
