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.

Van Gogh's at Saint Remy De Provence (#101) Duration: 26:36 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

David takes us through the tumultuous, penultimate year of van Gogh's life - 1889, spent in the asylum of St. Paul de Mausole at St. Remy. David demonstrates the personally expressive palette and brushwork of van Gogh while describing van Gogh's uniquely spiritual and impassioned intentions for painting. David demonstrates van Gogh's drawing techniques as a preparation for his paintings, reveals his connections to Dutch landscape painting and Impressionist color, and shows how he employs these ideas with expressive, moving gestures in the landscape of van Gogh.
