I love visiting art galleries and wandering around the impressionist paintings by artists such as Turner. I’ve almost always lived by the sea and so I find seascapes very relaxing. There’s something about the movement in a painting that is difficult to replicate in a photograph.
Difficult, but not impossible. With long(ish) exposures and deliberately moving your camera in different ways, you can create some beautiful abstract images which, with a little experimentation, might even be worth hanging on your own wall.
