This painting, whilst in its subject matter, composition and style characteristic of Olsen’s work, is also radically different from his other seascapes. This is because Olsen seems preternaturally alive to the changing conditions of weather, light and time of day, and able to play with the basic elements of his pictures (five-eighths sky, three-eighths sea, sailing ships) to produce an extraordinarily varied output. There are few artists of such restricted themes whose work could be hung all together and continually astonish by the versatility of its mood, colouring and effect.
