Winslow Homer Study
This painting is a master study of one of Winslow Homer's painting of a group of American tourists traveling through the White mountains of New Hampshire. I chose to create a study of his painting while also incorporating my own brush strokes and bold contrast to the main values in the painting. This painting is a grand example of the age of American exploration and the journey into a world unknown. Much like how people of many different backgrounds travel to and from different countries in order to learn more about ourselves. The main focus of this painting is the woman riding forward on her horse as a man behind her waves her down. This could be interpreted as the American dream and ambition of pushing forward even when things draw us back.
