As we head deeper into fall, with winter right around the corner, I wanted to take a look back at the summer. I decided to feature some prints I did from our summer excursion into the Pacific Northwest…reference two prior posts: Henry Island to Anacordes and Roche Harbor . The theme is nautical and warm. The prints I decided to feature today are all done using a fauvism technique. Fauvism was used by a group of modern artists in the early twentieth century. It favored painterly qualities with strong colors over realistic values, giving an abstract feel to a print.
The first print is of Roche Harbor on San Juan Island. The harbor is clearly a haven for numerous boats.
The second print is the same harbor, but with a different perspective. This scene is looking across the bay to Henry Island in the background. The other side of Henry Island faces Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.
With the third print, the setting is much more subdued with a single sailboat navigating the waters around San Juan Island.
The fourth art print takes us back to Seattle on Lake Union. The scene depicts a sailboat with a group of guys enjoying the sun and water (they were packing a large water blaster to soak passing boats all in good fun), with the Space Needle in the background.
The fifth and final print, also from Lake Union depicts a guy kayaking with his dogs. What could be more fun than that?
I invite you to visit my Lighthouse/Nautical Gallery to enjoy these prints and many more.
