Standing By The Tree :Autumn

With each gale and each passing day autumn is making its presence felt,even though plenty of leaves on trees and warm days

Hints of stronger winds  and evenings drawing in,another season beginning ,the cycle of life and death

such  is the  yearly cycle that Mother Nature brings to us

J.M.W.Turner Finding Bridges

Turner painted a few  bridges in his time.They  may be part of that painting  and  not the main souce  of the inspration  but none the less still there.

The construction of Prebends' Bridge at a location that captured fantastic views of Durham Cathedral and the riverbanks has made the view from the bridge the classical postcard image of Durham. This isn't a recent thing - JMW Turner painted the view of the bridge in the 19th century, (but used artistic license to show more of the Cathedral, and included the Castle as well).

As in this painting Of Durham Cathedral. Turners use of dramatic licence in evidence here as regards the Cathedral position  but  the  lovely golden  hue he creates makes for a dramatic painting.

Westminster Bridge and the House   Parliement burning, though again the bridge not the main focal pint the dramatic event of 1834 recorded here  by Turner .He sketched from  the vantage point near the scene to  . The use of Light and darlk emphises the dramatic qualitey of the fire.

Another atmospheric  painting  two arches caught in time  as if suspended in the elements (or pollution)

J.M.W.Turner:Alnwick Castle 1829

TURNER Joseph Mallord William Alnwick Castle, ca. 1829

This paintong by Turner chosen really beacause of the bridge but nonetheless the subject matter dramatic and sublime.

Tje moon as the source of light and the contrasts o light and dark bothof which could be said to be Turners trademarks as he was the master of atmoshere
