In this beautiful large-scale painting Titcomb plays with subtle effects of light and shade, leading our eyes away from the central group who are in shadow, to the group behind, who are illuminated by light coming through the window. Titcomb also enjoys showing the differences between the old weather-worn Mariners and the fresh features of their youthful students.
