  3. An incredible wild looking sea. It's a great painting and you can almost feel those wild waves.

  4. Great painting. Never seen Zuiderzee in a storm before, guess it can be quite rough!

  6. A bit hyper-real but dramatic. The Dutch have been great sailors for centuries but I'm happy to leave that work to others.
