Thank you! Please try to improve the presentation of your drawings using my tutorial - [link] I'm saying this as for example in the group I'm senior mod Realms of Fantasy, presented like they are at the moment, would be declined for bad presentation.
I wouldn't dare say mediocre, I've never seen a portrait by him. Although probably he had not the talent of Ilya Repin for painting people and portraits and certainly his most known paintings are all sea landscapes. Also he did very good works that were not or were not fully at seas (I'm thinking of Scenes of life in Cairo and Constantinople at monnlight).
Thanks you! Well no, but I know very well his works. I've made some works as an homage to him as well. Btw it is interesting, that while real genius in his marine paintings, he was pretty mediocre in painting everything that does not include sea.
