"Rain, Steam, and Speed - The Great Western Railway"
This painting named "Rain, Steam, and Speed - The Great Western Railway" by J.M.W. Turner is a very interesting painting. The contrast and blurriness of the painting makes it look better because it plays on the title. A steam train from afar you just see steam until the train is right in front of you. The painting is very abstract but yet you know what it is. Since we just worked with water color paint I feel like this had that element. .This painting was created in 1844 and is currently located in England.
