Wonderful translucent light on the sea and a bright sunny sky with friendly cumulus clouds makes this a painting that appears to be of Mediterranean latitudes! Cull is his usual competent self when it comes to a painting that stands out: the light is wonderful and he does know how to show a sea that is alive, wet , ever moving and in this case, not too inhospitably cold.
