There’s nothing like the feeling of squeezing out a tube of oil paint onto a palette, dipping a brush or tool into the thick goop and striking the blank canvas with colour.
The great master and Brit art legend Turner is our paint inspiration this week. In typical Living Paintings style, blind and partialy sighted people can enjoy Turner’s priceless works of art for free in our Touch to See library:
