The watercolor entitled Inland Water, Bermuda was painted by Winslow Homer in 1901, at the age of sixty-five. During this period, the artist took regular trips to tropical locations, like many spots on the Florida coast, as well as the Bahamas, Cuba, and Bermuda. He would portray the different landscape mainly with watercolor and pencil. By working outdoors, Homer was able to observe the effects of the sunlight at various locations, during diverse periods of the day and in many kinds of weather conditions. This technique was similar to the how the Impressionists worked – which they called painting en plein air – but Homer was already working this way before traveling to Europe. The similarities in technique were a reason for Homer to become inspired by the modern painting, adopting some aspects of the style into his own work.
Watercolors were a perfect medium for Homer to experiment, and he produced traditional, realistic and detailed work, as well as experimental and expressive works with Impressionistic characteristics. The artist also created watercolors studies, so he could later conclude a larger and final oil painting in his studio. During the late period of Homer’s career, his financial situation was stable, as many museums were interested in purchasing his work for a good price. He worked mainly on landscapes without human figures, and the artworks that did feature them would always tie in with the narrative of the culture he was portraying – even though they would be secondary figures in the composition. Homer no longer dedicated himself to the narrative of humankind and nature, focusing mainly on the greatness of nature itself, mostly in breathtaking seascape paintings.
The watercolor Inland Water, Bermuda is a simple landscape shown from a high viewpoint and with a beautifully vibrant color palette. In the forefront, a field of green grass with specks of orange flowers and some darker stones can be seen. Adjacent to the field, a gray stone wall separates the area, and a simple house can be seen in the background with dark green vegetation behind. The ocean is calm, painted in watery blue pigments, with a horizontal stripe of darker blue and a hint of ochre near the shore. A couple of dark islands can be seen in the distance, while some blue-gray clouds gather on the left of the paper.
