Moonlight and the Wind

Moonlight and the Wind, 2018, oil on linen, 56 x 46 cm

I've always liked paintings that capture the wind, especially in the work of Winslow Homer, and the watercolour of his, below, certainly captures a gale force wind. Hopefully there is some wind in my painting. Throughout this series I've tried to express the natural forces but perhaps Romanticism has been an influence too and yet I don't know for certain because sometimes your influences can be subliminal.
