appreciate = sea and sky studies

living on an island i suppose i am naturally draw to the sea
browsing my posts it's a recurring theme or image
i feel very draw to these two images
mostly because these famous artists both capture the beautiful wilderness that is the sea
i had no idea turner painted images of the island but tate britain proves otherwise 
turner: 'study of sea and sky, isle of wight'

Joseph Mallord William Turner, ‘Study of Sea and Sky, Isle of Wight’ 1827
 this one is constable. It broods so magnificently, 'the sea near brighton':
John Constable, ‘The Sea near Brighton’ 1826
