The Nocturne

Alexei Bogolubov - Russian

Friedrich - German, Seascape by Moonlight

The Nocturne, or Moonlit Seascape, is a subgenre of Seascape painting worth considering. Such scenes are a good antidote for an excess of Yang energy. Hyperactive people, who need to develop emotional depth and inner calm, may benefit from the cool lunar vibe. Lethargic or depressive types, or those with an excess of Yin, should probably avoid them, however.

Keep up the good work, it IS appreciated.

Thanks very much Jim. I'm also enjoying discovering these wonderful artists. I'll try to keep finding and posting quality marine art if I can. The genre isn't huge though, so I guess I may eventually run out of images.
