The Tide Pools at Winslow Homer Prouts Neck, Maine (Episode #207H)

KQED Life: Sun, Jul 30, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

David visits another location on the rocky shores of Prouts Neck, Maine, where the famously enigmatic Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived for the final 27 years of his life and painted some of his most recognizable, theatrical, and iconic seascapes. David explores the calm tide pools swirling around the rocky shores and discusses Homer's techniques and palette as he paints an oil painting of the shores of Maine from the rocks.

Winslow Homer's Seas at Prouts Neck, Maine (Episode #206H)

KQED Life: Sun, Jul 23, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

David travels on the rocky shores of Prouts Neck, Maine, where the famously enigmatic Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived for the last 27 years of his life and painted some of his most recognizable, theatrical, and iconic seascapes. Battling the wind, David paints an evocative watercolor at the location of the famed Cannon Rock, and an oil sketch of the rocks and turbulent sea in front of Homer's studio.

James Abbott McNeill Whistler's Venice (Episode #205H)

KQED Life: Sun, Jul 2, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

David travels to two iconic Venetian locations that inspired provocative artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) during his transformative trip in 1879-1880. Whistler's pastels, along with his etchings, brought him increased fame when he returned to London. David demonstrates a pastel drawing using Whistler's techniques and color palette while standing on the Giudecca overlooking the broad panorama of Venice. He then visits the famous Piazza San Marco and completes a quick oil sketch in the twilight, fading rapidly into night.
