Abstract, 16x20 in oil.

Terrible photos (sorry I'll post another one in daylight tomorrow).

I'll do a few more layers here, so this is kind of an underpainting of the abstract, but it's two hours worth....I'm loving everything else I'm seeing. This is fun.

Color is closer in the bottom photo, except for the horrible glare caused by my flash and poor lighting.

Hi Reinboblu,

I've seen you over in the figure forum...I know exactly which photo reference you used because my sister did it here, too. (She's bluepellinore, lives near you in MA, but she's trying to be anonymous :evil: he he)

Your painting works very well as an abstract and I especially like the warm colors and texture of your brush strokes.

Abstract, but not really. The water and the rock face are both terrific.

Very pleasing- the kind of painting one never tires of, because the viewers mind interprets it each time the painting is viewed ! REALLY like the colours in #2 post. :clap:

Love the colors (both versions) and the knifework. You've captured energy and strength of the rock and sea very well. Looking forward to the finish!
