Mystic, CT Getaway at the Seaport and Red 360

On a recent Sunday we decided to take a trip to Mystic Seaport to view the exhibition of the legendary British painter, J.M.W. Turner, being held at the Museum.  The exhibit is  in partnership with Tate, London and is being held from October 5, 2019 through February 23, 2020.    Since I have recently picked up a paintbrush and started painting with watercolor I was specifically interested in seeing Turner’s watercolor paintings.   This exhibit holds a fabulous selection of over 90 of his works.   The exhibit is well organized with great explanations of each work.   It was a busy day at the exhibit and I was really inspired by his work and picked up some tips on how to improve my own work.   There were plenty of books for sale at the Museum about Turner as well.   I am now the owner of his book titled “How to Paint Like Turner.”   If I could only be so lucky to paint even one stroke like his work I’ll be happy!   J.M.W.
