Marc A Turner Art Exhibition Over Land and Sea

The inspiration

The inspiration for the name of this Marc A Turner Art Exhibition Over Land and Sea currently being shown at the Castle Park Art Centre was due to a trip to Bruges to collect a 1999 T-reg Audi Quarto, the journey began with a walk to the train station to take a train to Manchester Airport England, a quick flight to Brussels and a hire car to Bruges, we had a wonderful overnight stay in the Martins Hotel and then collect the car and take a wonderful drive to Calais where we caught the ferry to Dover, the final drive back to Warrington with many thoughts rushing through my head, hence “Over Land and Sea”.

Portfolio

This portfolio of the Marc a Turner Art Exhibition Over Land and Sea at Castle Park Arts Centre walks you through the exhibition to give you a glance at some of the work on show, please enjoy the attached photos with a short explanation of the work.

Over Land and Sea

Over Land and Sea

This painting Over Land and Sea is the painting that was my vision partly during the journey from Bruges, it is a vision of many of the scenes that I have been lucky enough to view whilst traveling, the image is a display over land and sea with the beautiful shine of the sun glowing through the light clouds and reflecting on the land and sea.

At Sea

And Sea (2)

At Sea is part of the Exhibition and one of my favourite ways to paint, I have always been inspired by painters like JMW Turner and Charles Brooking, this is  a method of painting that takes quite a long time to achieve a result, but is one of the most satisfying ways to paint.

Places I’ve lived

Places Iv lived (2)

These paintings are of Places I’ve Lived, that have inspired me to paint, as you can see they are of different parts of the world that I have been lucky enough to have lived, there is a saying that being well traveled is like being well read, I have a major problem reading and writing but I have the eye of a well travelled artist and I believe I portray just that.

After the Masters

After Turner (2)

This selection of paintings are After JWM Turner, they are part of my After the Masters series of paintings and relate to the Over Land and Sea in many ways, JWM Turner travelled and painter Over Land and Sea and I have spent many years making copies of his work in order to learn from one of the Greatest Painters the world has ever known. I often teach other painters how to use the same techniques as the Great Master Painters like JWM Turner.

After Van Gogh

Landscape with Green Corn

This painting after Vincent Van Gogh of Landscape with Green Corn was carried out on one of my workshops of painting like the Masters which was a great success and the standard achieved by everyone was very pleasing.

Painting in the Garden

Plein air at GHWG (2)

Painting in the Garden was carried out En Plein Air in Grappenhall Hays Walled Gardens during a one day course to support the Gardens, this event may take place Annually.

Landscape in the colour spectrum

Landskape in the colour spectrim (2)Landscape in the colour spectrum is a simple way for me to practice looking at the effect of different lite and colour combinations and to practice tonal value at the same time, this gives me the confidence to realise what colour would be best suited in a given situation to create the best atmosphere for the painting.

The Quad

The Quad

There are 4 small paintings that have a lot to do with over land and sea, I was lucky enough to see the space shuttle flying over my home one night and I thought how amazing it would be if one could be up there and looking down, it played on my mind and I then saw a photo that someone had made with a shadow behind it, I went to my studio and painted four paintings each with a different meaning and here are tree of them.

The Painting Medium in Turner Artist Oil Colours

The only mediums used to create all of the work was the Turner Artist Oil Colours, and the supports are a variation of panel and canvas all of varying sizes, details of the Turner colours can be found at: www.turnerartistcolours.com  Turner artist oil paints are manufactured in a traditional way and are of the finest quality Refined linseed oil and pure quality pigments.
