Map of Isle of Wight and Carisbrook Castle by J.M.W Turner

For todays painting I thought I would show the image of a painting and a Map. I was thinking that people who may read this blog in other countries might like to know where some of the places I mention are.

The Isle of Wigh for instance is a island off the Southern coast of England.

Turner painted this after his 1827 vistit to the island and it shows his use of light with the showing of sunshine on the castle walls also note the storm clouds
