William Turner has visited many places and has created wonderful paintings on his travels.
Almost 200 years ago he has also been to see the River Nahe which meets the River Rhine after passing through the beautiful village of Bad Munster am Stein in Germany.
Turner painted scenes of the valley with its impressive mountains in watercolour. The Rotary club have donated a printed copy of one of Turner´s paintings and had it placed at a beauty spot as you can see in the photo.
I was fortunate to have been able to visit the same valley last year. Not claiming to come anywhere near Turner´s mastery I have painted a scene of the same rocks from a different angle. It shows the Kursaal which was built around 1910. The building is placed on the other side of the river which passes the rocks Turner must have found so attractive.
