Monk by the Sea

This is the Monk by the Sea by Caspar David Friedrich done during 1809-1810 it is an Oil on Canvas. I liked this painting because it shows a lot of darkness at the bottom however the top is very light.  I like how this painting portrays the sea in a very menacing way, a lot of artists like to show the beauty of the sea in a peaceful way with the sun setting or something like that but this painting shows the darker side of the ocean.
