The painting above is a oil painting created by J.M Tuner. This painting is called Snowstorm- Steam Boat off a Harbour's MouthThe swirling storm creates a composition that leaves the eye to circle around the canvas repeatedly. The black of the wind and the waves of the sea create a circle around the doomed ship. Through the windy peephole, the viewer can see the helpless ship at the mercy of nature's violent motion. Many of his paintings are detailed nature images that involve the ocean and scenic views. It is abstract and dark.
