To start, I inspried by this for your impressionism, I love the impressionism artists, and this is a very nice rendition. This painting is nicely caried out! if you intend to precreate an impressionism style for your own, refrain from the use of base layers as I see with the dark blue for the water and buildings and black for the sky, use these tones but down spread them flatly across the canvas. Van Gogh and Monet are good examples of this.

However the illustration of the passage of time is not necessarily present in this piece...

Van Gogh was actually a Post-Impressionist painter but Monet was an Impressionist himself. And I can see what you're saying. Another part of Impresssionism is the illustration of light and dark and the passage of time itself. A painterly feel is also present in Monet's work, and there are some painterly aspects to this piece itself. I tried to push the tone of the water by adding some light and dark brush strokes and make it look like waves. I used many many layers of paint on this, especially for the water and the buildings. But I do appreciate your advice! We all have something to learn from each other.
