Turner went three times to Venice and after Italy his palette changed as he added more light colors and reflections. “The sun is my God” came to be his mantra and he tried to capture the sun light in different ways in his paintings. In many of his paintings, you can see the temperature and the time of the day just by looking at the sky.
You always see the end result of what artists create, which is great but not enough. Especially since it takes months of work to finish just one piece. Think about how much more you would understand of the painting if you could see the process behind it. Also, the process is something beautiful in itself, don't you think? Shaping, forming, changing, evolving...It is not only the destination but the journey that matters!
