J. M. W. Turner, Snow Storm: Steamboat off a Harbour’s Mouth, exhibited 1842, oil on canvas, 91.4 x 121.9 cm, Tate Collection. Source
The story goes that Turner painted this particular stormy seascape whilst physically tied to the mast of a second ship. This is pretty unlikely, not to mention ridiculous, but the fact that the artist was able to recreate a scene as dramatic and terrifying as this is still a remarkable feat, and reminds the viewer of Turner’s natural talent.

Amazing. 
More on Turner.
