With color, I have noticed my camera tends to enhance blue tints and tones,
so the colors are more accurate in your jpeg than mine.

Serigraphs can have slight variations, but usually just in registration
(each color gets it own screen) and some silk-screeners don't mix enough
pigment to complete and entire print set, though I think Shag is aware of this
as he did silk-screening as part of his art education, and probably won't
hire a screener who skimps on mixing colors.

The image you have is the one that I saw when I ordered the print,
so I believe it is the image Shag sent out for the print when it was
released for the DVA Gallery show. It is of the serigraph, but it might
be a proof, as the divide between the ocean and sky is clearer in it.

I'm noticing minor differences in detail between your photo of the print and the one I have which is not of the painting . So all the prints aren't exactly the same either I guess . Pardon me , I know little about the silkscreening process .
