Bumble, that is beautiful. Love the sky and the texture and the golden tone.

That's gorgeous! The ominous sky, the reflections in the water (perfect treatment of the reflection of the sail), and distant haze... it's just fantastic.

Gorgeous scene.

Great painting. The boat seems to be very lonely and unprotected

Love it Bumble!

It's outstanding! It seems to be halfway between Guardi and Turner if it were not an essentially tonal painting. Something in the lights reminds me a similar, though warmer and calmer, atmosphere of the Géricault masterpiece (I know the title in Italian which would be literally the Medusa's Raft; You very likely know it), but in my opinion You still feel uneasy as if a sudden storm might be about to start.
