“The inspiration for this painting came as I was reading a fascinating book called ‘Turner in the North’ by Professor David Hill. The book contains reproductions of pencil sketches made by Turner on his first trip from London. Some of the sketches were worked up into finished paintings, sometimes many years later.
As far as I know this sketch was never painted by the great man, so it was ideal materiel for me to use as a base for my interpretation of Turner’s York.
I am very grateful to Professor Hill who kindly allowed me to use the sketch in his book, as well as some interesting hints about how Turner might have worked.”

As a painter of light, legend and landscape I am indebted to the wonderful medium of watercolour which gives me the versatility to incorporate many different styles in to my work.

    Really loving your night scenes Glenn. The lighted windows is a very nice touch in this one.

    I am pleased with this one Jim. It is a large painting and the sketch was done in typical Turner style. The scene doesn’t exist! Turner painted the bridge from a boat in the middle of the river Ouse and then stood on the bridge to add the Minster. I wouldn’t have attempted to paint a sketch he had already done but there are several more to have a go at and the Professor has given me permission to have a bash!

    One of your best is here……..i do love this one… have done a outstanding job on this one, i do love it………

  • I had a lot of fun with this one. I deliberately painted it as a nocturne scene as I didn’t want to try and co9mpete with one of the master’s sunrises.

    Excellent artwork !!!

  • Thanks George. The bridge in the painting fell down soon after Turner sketched it and has been replaced. Most of the bjuidings on the right hand side of the river have also gone – but the pub still stands today, even if the church on the left of the bridge has also been demolished – must have some meaning!
