On the Beach in Four Parts

Based on Winslow Homer’s ‘On the Beach’ – Susan Krieg Artist

One can learn a lot from taking a painting by a master and painting from it. Using Winslow Homer’s painting titled ‘On the Beach’, I recreated my version as shown here.

I chose to break it into 4 separate parts for interpretation. I wanted to capture the crashing waves in the lower right corner, change the colors and the mood for the ladies in the lower left corner. I gave the gull prominence and a spiritual quality in the upper right corner and had to darken the mood with my continuing frustration over covid 19 by making an evil gull in the upper left corner.

I could see framing them in four separate frames and hanging together or matting all four in one matt in one frame. The painting is acrylic on Somerset  printmaking paper. I used a lot of neon and flash paint on this experimental piece, except for the painting in the upper left corner which is 100% collage. Each of the individual paintings measure 12” x 17” The overall piece including the areas of margins is approximately  28” x 38”. Definitely requires framing under glass.
