Sheila Hancock on Watercolour

In this short film she visits Tate Britain’s Prints and Drawings Room, where she is given an up-close view of JMW Turner’s The Blue Rigi, Sunrise 1842 (one of the several Turner pictures that features in Tate Britain’s Watercolour exhibition), as well as the chance to see the travelling watercolour palette that the artist used to carry around in the 1830s.
