The painting of Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky "The Black Sea" has an amazing property, like all the masterpieces of the artist. Looking at the landscape depicted in front of our eyes, there is a feeling of being in the thick of the vast expanses of the Black Sea.

The composition is harmoniously divided into two equal parts, where the upper half of the canvas is the sky and the lower half is directly the sea. These two halves, separated by a horizon, resemble certain reflections of opposites. In the sky we see clouds, and closer to the right side of the canvas they darken, turning into clouds. The sea appears before us in its powerful elemental manifestation, and white clouds of heaven are reflected on the massive ridges of the rippling water, interspersed with foamed sea ridges.

Looking deep into the picture, we see directly under the clouds, closer to the left edge of the canvas, the unsteady, barely perceptible in the distance, land. Near the distant coastal line, we barely distinguish a vague figure reminding us of a lone sailboat, striving for a home.

The sea is made in blue-green tones, reminiscent of the true color of the sea wave. In the sky there is a whole palette of various shades, including pale milky white, matte pink, blue, turquoise, purple and even a gray-blue tone.

The clouds move, like sea waves, from right to left, driving away the weather, revealing clear expanses in the sky, and transforming the water abyss into a fabulous, sometimes phosphorescent heavenly white light - the sea. Clouds and clouds form a wedge, if we consider them in the horizontal plane. The lower part of the wedge resembles a tornado expanding to the left side.

The upper part of the wedge more gently expands to the center of the picture. Thus, the gap between thunderclouds and cumulus clouds forms a bright space above the ship, far from us and close to the shores of his house.
