Homer Variation Number Two

25 x 25 inches; acrylic and mixed media on paper

Winslow Homer, A Summer's Night

I was quite struck by the dark tones in contrast to the deep dull blue-green in Homer's piece. It was that combination which was the inspiration for this variation. Currently my studio practice is a little uneven and I believe I would benefit from a routine and from establishing a deeper connection with these larger paintings. I think this piece in particular could use some more attention. I'd like to develop the surface and color imparting some deeper richness.
