Proteus was a Titan of the sea, changeable and dangerous. The sea is safe until the wind grabs hold of it and breaks the swells into waves. This painting uses oil pastel with water colour; to pour oil on Troubled water in a storm prevents the waves from breaking and so it's something to do to protect a vessel and adds to the themes in this painting to respect the nature of things and people and sometimes it's best to be prepared to soothe them rather than to be sunk.
