This is a small watercolor sketch for a coming Nihonga painting.
Nihonga is the name of traditional Japanese painting. We are taking lessons of that challenging technique at Gallery Craole.
More than any other person I’ve ever interviewed, Turner is so profoundly aware of the need to express himself with precision that it occasionally seems to leave him vocally hamstrung. He stops himself, retraces his steps, leaves long gaps while searching for exactly the right metaphor.
"It’s why I don’t have Twitter," he says. "Too much pressure."
At one point, he interrupts his own disquisition on the merits of playing darts with: “Fuck it. I’m not going to bother with that. You don’t want to hear that analogy.”
