Certain aspects of the sca which are within the grasp of paint are sclected and rendered with all possible vigour, the rest being frankly left out. Mr. Hunter does not attempt to transfer the waves to his canvas, He understands that paint can grapple with the sea as colour, and as colour he is content to take it. The result is, that although he does not touch all those chords in us which sympathise with the sea, he moves one of them to a deeper vibration than it can receive from an art more diffuse. — Walter Armstrong, p. 77
