Tate Britain unveils Turner’s experiments

Anyone interested in watercolour techniques and print making should head down to the Tate Britain for the free Turner exhibition – ‘Colour and Line: Turner’s Experiments.’

The two room display features work by the artist who revolutionised watercolour painting. The exhibition includes a variety of interactive displays exploring his working methods and techniques.

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775–1851) is known to have produced the finest quality in both watercolour and prints for his time and the display takes a scientific turn showcasing his experiments with colour.

Visit the second room to see how travel influenced Turner’s work and colour palette.

You can even try your hand at some of Turner’s techniques!
