Things people are saying on Reddit & Facebook

~ I wouldn't say I know a lot about art - of course I enjoy various forms of visual art but I don't read books about it or visit the gallery too often. I just wanted to tell you that "Dangerous Beauty" was one of the very best paintings I have ever seen in my life. I was just casually browsing Reddit when I saw it and my jaw dropped. It was the first time that I felt anything when looking at a painting.

Believe me, I am not exaggerating and you're the first person I am writing a message of appreciation to. I love everything about your painting - the tones of the water, the depth of the clouds, the composition, the emotion it gives me. I couldn't take my eyes off it for a few minutes.
Thank you for sharing this piece. I think it will change my view of paintings - I couldn't feel a thing when I visited the National Gallery in London but your painting really hit me hard

~ Thanks God pictures that i don't understand costs millions and something like this one is affordable(i think it is).

~ Your acrylics always look so blendy, I would think they were oils. Excellent work!

~ You did a great job of capturing when that one bit of sunlight gets through the clouds and makes it look like the water is almost glowing

~ I love the turmoil of the sea! J.MW. Turner inspiration? His work is my favorite. If you haven't seen it, I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Edit: The comparison to Ivan Aivazovsky from the other user is more accurate, since Turner's oceans were impressionist and less detailed

~ Look up Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky. OP's painting looks very inspired by his work. If not it's an uncanny similarity.

~ That little swirl on the right looks like part of the wave running away screaming.

~ Another awesome ocean painting. I love the light and colors of the water. Great job once again.

~ Wow this is incredible! Fantastic work op

~ This is my home screen and lock screen now. Thanks

~ Awesome! I love that :)

~ I really like the way you utilized such brilliant white to heavily contrast the ocean wave cresting against the dull grey expanse behind it. Very dramatic painting that has a kinetic edge that I find thrilling. Well done. I'm loving this piece. I love the cyan color with the dark grays and sand color. I would definitely hang this up in my home.

~ I never comment on this sub but I burst out loud "Ooo...I really like that" while mindlessly scrolling through RES. Just thought I'd let you know...I really,really like it!

~ That's beautiful.I get a slightly melancholical feeling, while looking at this. Now I want to go outside and dance in the rain while listening to Elliot Smith. Thank you!

~ Really great juxtaposition between the springy hue of the blue sea and the dark mystique of the low rolling clouds -- really terrific work, thanks for sharing with us!!
P.S This was beautifully encapsulated by the title "Dangerous Beauty"
Awesome!! Would love a poster of this of print. Would just need a link :)
Nice, it's very Winslow Homer-esque to me.

~ I'm not an artist but had to comment here- this is absolutely beautiful. Perfect combination of turbulent ocean and stormy skies, I've wanted a piece like this for ages. Well done!

~ Thought this was real there for a minute, GREAT job!

~ Is this for sale?

~ Sweet! Love how the waves. You capture the motion perfectly. Lovely use of color.

~ Water and the ocean are one of the harder things to paint for me. You did a great job!

~ Great work, I really like the water effect at the top. Is that based off a real species of fish?

~ Love***

~ Are you selling? The painting of the long pier looks really awesome!

~ %%k you. You're very good at this, better than me or anyone i know.

~ The whole series is just something to marvel at. The waters are painted with detail and motion, it insane!

~  I love this piece so much. The use of light in the clouds and reflecting off of the water is really wonderful, and it provides a perfect contrast to the seemingly dim town. Plus, I love how you also put in florescent lighting with the street lamps, because it offers up a different use of light and it's really easy to make that comparison. Well done!!!

~  That’s amazing! You definitely did accomplish your goal of working with colors and toning. I love your use of shade. I’d love to see more art that you’ve made. Keep it up:)

~  I always adore when an artist use an otherwise darkish color for highlights but the piece comes together so well that you can almost feel the sun reflecting directly on your eyes!
