Technique and condition
This watercolour is composed on white paper with preliminary under-drawing in pencil. The image was created by the careful application of watercolour to dry paper. There is little overlap of colours in the painting except for areas where shadow and lighting effects have been created. Pigments used include yellow ochre, vermilion and possibly indigo.
Blank, except for paint smears and pencil curlicues; stained and creased; inscribed in a modern hand ‘15’; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
