OIL PAINTING:  Nocturnal Voyage

      Aivazovsky was not just a professional marine painter, he knew the sea and loved it. Aivazovsky developed a unique way of capturing its changing moods. Instead of copying directly from nature, he limited himself to pencil sketches. Coupled with his most important gift, an amazing visual memory, this enabled Aivazovsky to reproduce particular states of nature -''Nocturnal Voyage''.
