Ivan Aivazovsky speed study

I continue to approach speed painting with a completely noncommittal experimental outlook. This time I made up a new set of parameters:
•30 minute time limit
•Study of someone far greater than myself (in this case, Ivan Aivazovsky, whose ocean landscapes blow Turner out da water)
•Do mine at half the size of the original to keep it thumbnail-y
•NO COLORPICKING from the original. Had to eyeball everything.

Not perfect, alas, but acceptable for 30 minutes.

Only touch I'd suggest is a hard dark area in the boat to solidify it with some shadow contrast.

The water looks cold, brrr...
