|Winslow Homer's The Gale|
I recently saw The Gale by Winslow Homer at the Worcester Art Museum and was enthralled. I was especially captivated by Homer's palette of warm and cool greys juxtaposed against the inky black of the seaside rocks. My viewing of the painting planted a seed for a series of work based on the color and composition of paintings from Homer's Maine period. The first attempt is pictured above. A second painting based on A Summer Night is under construction in the studio right now.
