Spotlight - JMW Turner

Joseph Mallord William Turner (23 April 1775 – 19 December 1851) was an English Romantic landscape painter, watercolourist and printmaker, whose style is said to have laid the foundation for Impressionism.

One of my top 10 favorite painters, hands down. Possibly even top 5.

Flint Castle

The Burning of the Houses of Parliament, 1834
watercolor on paper
