Edinburgh skyline in “Turner Style” – Watercolour on tinted paper

Turner often painted on coloured paper. He also painted very loosely just hinting at detail. One of his better known works is a view from Calton Hill. It appears to be done on a yellow surface:

This is an attempt to try the same scene – but 200 years later. The paper used is a tinted Bockingford paper with a rough surface. Just an experiment.
