Magnificent, I can imagine it would have been an amazing & intimidating sight to behold for weary sailors arriving at Alexandria for the first time...

I absolutely love this piece. I cant believe more people havent commented. I like the lighting, the mood and i also love the angle from which you look up at the lighthouse. The water and the way the light shines through the sails is done soo amazingly. Once again, THIS IS SUCH AN AMAZING PIECE OF ART.

How long did this take? .o. Also, what do you think is the most difficult part for you?

You painted the water so good. I hope to learn how to do this. I think by far... you have the best water paintings on DA.

Beautifully done, not only is it painted with a high degree of skill but it is also the composition and how you used a dutch angle effectively.
