Waterscape; Marine; Harbor; Boat; Sailboat


Watercolor and gouache on beige paper depicting a view of Setauket Harbor. Foreground of picture consists of grassy shoreline; dirt road curving across the bottom left corner and through an opening in a split rail fence; to far right a man and woman with parasol sit on a bench overlooking the water; small coniferous and deciduous trees loosely line the bank of the harbor. Midground depicts the harbor spreading horizontally across the paper, small watercraft spread across the water, single gaff-rigged sloop occupies most of the center space. Background shows far shore of the harbor scattered with trees and structures on grassy rolling hills; hillside to the right side is closer, water of the harbor disappears around its left peninsula to continue on out of sight; center of background appears to depict a proper harborfront with multiple moored boats of various sizes; sky above is tinged with a light blue-purple and highlighted with white clouds and orange pigment.
