Variation Number 3

Variation Number 3, 25 x 25", acrylic and pastel on paper

Winslow Homer, The Artist's studio in an Afternoon Fog

  This painting has a particularly rich and beautiful color combination which unfortunately, doesn't show up in the image from the Memorial Art Gallery Collection.  It may well be that the print in my book is inaccurate - that is the way of color balance and reproduction.  All that aside, the image I was inspired by was a stunning combination of a deep rich brown and translucent ochre complimented by a cool mineral grey and a muted almost-not-violet.  I wish there were words...
