Deer Drinking, 1892

Winslow Homer

Dappled light glances off a forest pond as a doe drinks, probably unaware of her reflection. To quench her thirst, she’s had to navigate a huge fallen log, draping her body across it until her forelegs are almost submerged. Despite this awkward pose, this watercolor scene evokes a tranquil mood. The painted surface of the water and the underbrush in the background have an abstract, sketchy quality, evoking the feeling of sunlight filtered through leaves.
