The Art Institute of Chicago is hosting an exhibition of 130 watercolors by Winslow Homer. Attend, by all means, but if you are unable to go, they have a fantastic overview of the exhibit online at http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/exhibitions/homer_exhb/overview
Do you know exactly where his permanent studio at Prout's Neck is located? See the menu on the upper right side of that page and click "Behind the Scene" for photos of his palette and brushes, videos of basic watercolor techniques with related artwork by Homer, his locations and much more!
My two favorite painters are John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer. Who are yours?
