‘Ladies at Sea’ by Katrine Storebø


Ladies at Sea (oil on wood 2012) is part of a series of ten paintings done on commission by a Norwegian shipping company to be displayed on a supply ship. The painting is based on a photograph from the west coast of Norway and shows an everyday scene from a coast community in the 1940’s. I am fascinated by snap shots where people are depicted in natural settings that reveals a story of the time and place the photo was taken. This particular photo was taken in black and white. I used a pinky, red colour to create the feel of a Norwegıan summer sunset. The lıght on the sky becomes pretty spectacular.
