Whaler's Cove

This image is part of a series I have entitled "Watercolors." In this photograph, and others, I have discerned nature's techniques and palettes of color—broad strokes, trailing wisps, evocative veils, impressionist dabs, pointillist dots, random splashes, cubist lines, and contorted angles. Game-changing artists from Renoir to Rothko had recognized this palette and devised transformative ways of interpreting what they saw and felt. Thus art evolved from realistic representations of the world to the extraction of nature's essence. In this photogrpah, I have attempted to understand this process. What I found was life imitating art.
