Aquatint literally means tinted water, and here Félix Buhot took the term seriously. This aquatint, depicting the stormy English seaside, looks almost wet. The dark gray passages of tone in the sky capture the looming storm and damp sea air, while the etched lines describe the torrent of pelting rain.
