It is incredible to think that Turner's use of colour had never really been explored prior to his work - with yellow for areas in sunlight; red through to deep ochre and sepia for shadows; blues, violets and blacks for areas in the distance. His painting techniques revolutionised the art world, inspired the impressionist movement and now hold a favoured place in popular culture. It is no wonder Turner is such a favoured artist amongst many, with his appreciation and ability to illustrate all the complexity and subtle variations present at dusk.
