Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is my version of 'Hurrah! for the Whaler Erebus! Another Fish!’
(1846 by JMW Turner)
My version is called The Return of Erebus with Birth of Aether & Day at 'sunset' across the Acheron.
The whale here is in the process of being caught. The name of this whaling ship comes from HMS Erebus, which with her companion vessel, the Terror, had discovered Antarctica during explorations of the South Seas in 1839-43.
