Last week we went up to the JMW Turner exhibit at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco.  Turner (1775 – 1851) was a landscape painter, watercolorist and printmaker.   Because of his very “unfinished  looking” style, he was highly controversial.  It was that characteristic that I found appealing in his work.  He was content only suggesting and didn’t feel the need to overly define.  I loved the drama of this painting and it had a handy bench right in front of it where I could sit and paint in my journal (the frame was added when I got home.)
