Stormy Seas at Night, 1849 – Ivan Aivazovsky

Stormy Seas was done on canvas paper, 16×20, and done in acrylic, 23k Gold Leaf and Genuine Copper Leaf. A thick layer of flexible matte molding paste was applied first for additional texture. Depending on the angle of lighting, as well as the severity of the light, the painting can appear glowing and light in color or glimmering in gold and dark red.
