Practicing Winslow Homer

Exercise Based on the Work of Winslow Homer
When most people think of Winslow Homer, they think of his amazing oil paintings.  But he was also the master of watercolor.  This is the last in a series of exercises on "still water" and it was time to try another technique.  This is Winslow Homer's "Fishing Boats, Key West" -- or rather it's an attempt to copy it and his style.  His original painting was actually watercolor and graphite on a woven linen.  I attempted to get some of the same speckled look by dry-brushing.
