Turner's Fighting Temeraire in Miniature

Do you subscribe to the Dolls House and Miniature Scene Magazine? 

I have a 4 page article in the latest edition that shows you how to recreate JMW Turner's Fighting Temeraire. Here's an extract from page 2:





This was not an easy painting to do! I painted it three times in preparation for this article, the first one was the wrong colour (too much red)...




The second one's sky was too busy and dominant (although I have to say, this one is my favourite)



And the third one came out truer to the original.




If you have a go I'd be very interested to see your results, if you post them on my facebook page I'll share them with my followers!
