This is awesome. Ever since I started avidly favoriting your pieces I could feel all these influences. I thought first Aivazovski and Shishkin. Then Dali (like on the one with the whale). Sometimes Miyazaki and lastly...various photos of epic sky I really wish you could share a bit about the techniques you use to get the painted feel. Even though ofc this is becoming a signature style for you so you might not be willing to say. But are you using the mixer brush on photoshop or just your usual brushes? Do you use the smudge tool ?
