Get a fresh perspective on the art of Winslow Homer (1836–1910), the American landscape painter best known for his marine subjects. This four-page monograph is part of the An Eye for Art series of the Washington DC-based National Gallery of Art. It says of Homer's masterful use of watercolour: With quick brushstrokes, he captured crashing waves, moving animals, and the visual effects of changing light. To suggest sunlight, Homer left areas of the white paper untouched. Using this technique, the whiteness of the paper — and not the paint — creates glints of brilliant light.
