The earliest marine painters loved to portray specific ships. Porcellis left that behind him. He was the first to paint the atmosphere on the water, and even how the wind blew. His paintings are grey yet rich in colour. The space he suggests is vast, partly because the largest ships are small, way off on the horizon. The rowboat in the foreground is large by comparison.
