How can a modern painter go about learning the techniques and methods of a long-dead master? Drawing on years of research and practice, Tony Smibert brings us a virtual apprenticeship, sharing his own method and approach that emulates J. M. W. Turner yet is contemporary, original and innovative. Turner had an extraordinary capacity to paint in ways that confounded his contemporaries and still amaze us today; Smibert s method of painting in Turner's style ingeniously draws together ideas and principles from East and West to bring out an entirely new perspective on Turner's practice.
