Turner’s annual trips throughout Britain and multiple continental tours fed his vast output of landscape paintings. Painting from nature, however, was not a regular activity for Turner who typically worked from memory and slight pencil sketches, filling hundreds of sketchbooks. His open-air paintings included a group painted on the Thames in the 1810s and a small number of Italian views, usually dated to his second visit, in 1828-29.
