The watercolor painting Petworth Park, Tillington Church in the Distance is a work by the English artist Joseph Mallord William Turner, and it was finished in 1828. It shows a sunset at the country house of the 3rd Earl of Egremont, George Wyndham, who was an art collector as well as a good friend of Turner.
Today the Petworth has a vast art collection, in it are several of Turner’s works depicting the building and its surrounding. An example is the Petworth: the Drawing room, made in 1930 and Landscape near Petworth, from 1828.
This is a rendering that shows the mature style of this Romantic artist. The materiality of the paint is evident in the sky. The transparencies, typical in watercolor paintings, were used with mastery. It seems, however, that Turner took some characteristics of the oil painting to the paper. The scraping of the paint, used on the clouds, for example.
The landscape we see on the Petworth Park is of the park that surrounded the country house. It was famous for the amount of deer that inhabited it. In the foreground, there is a chair on the left corner. We can see deer that are resting, grazing, some are male, others females. There seem to be also cubs alongside the adults. The deer spread themselves throughout the land, into the distance, but are depicted in a more relaxed way and become brushstrokes that insinuate the shape of the animals.
On the left side of the composition, a man is standing in the distance. Art historians believe that is George Wyndham. Following him are his dogs. The perspective used by Turner in this rendering resembles the one obtained with a fish-eye lens. The sun is in the same spot as the vanishing spot.
On the left side, there is a line of trees. All of them were painted with a brownish color, except the three most distant ones. It is possible that the original colors of this painting were more vivid than what is visible today. Willian Turner is known for choosing his pigments by the immediate result. He did not take into account the durability of the materials used.
On the right, there is also a cluster of trees. In the distance, a little closer than the Tillington Church, there is another group of trees. The color palette in this painting is composed of mostly browns. The sky has a hue of clear blue and yellow around the setting sun. The shadows of the deer extend themselves to the bottom edge of the watercolor.
