It is not ugly, just different. The red sky and the dark sea create a tension, which is not so usual for your paintings. I think it is beautiful, too! It is very nice when artists are also able to create pictures different in atmosphere, that makes art really exciting
lolz I don't think it's ugly at all. I believe that the only reason you find it ugly is because you used a lot more darker tones in this than your usual colors of intensity. Even when you have dark colors; the bright overtake them by far. However, this time you let the dark tones out a bit more; which is not bad at all.

I absolutely adore this painting, especially how the sky makes it look like the horizon is on fire. Kinda like London burning in the Victorian era. That might sound like a sinister thought but it just creates a scene in my mind with a story that I appreciate.
I would buy this is if I had the means. It's beautiful.
I think it's very different from most of your fare, but that's hardly a bad thing. It caught my eye with the duskier tones and the contrast between the darker colors and the brighter. I want to see more like this. The big sailing ship only makes me like it more, as I am partial to boats.
