A devoted modernist, landscape painter, and watercolorist, John Marin created compositions of partial forms—the essential elements of a view—using a rough charcoal sketch and passages of directionally applied watercolor washes that together suggest light and movement. He routinely allowed substantial areas of the paper support to remain unpainted—a technique that was usually less successful in his oils, in which he left areas of unpainted canvas exposed.
