Abstracted Seascape photographs - Cornwall

These images are seascapes, abstracted from photographs.
The central one in each line is a photo, while the outliers are 'altered'.
I'm not going into details of how I altered the photographic images, but the aim is to create
slabs of colour that take the essence of the tones that the original seascape offered.
I used techniques that weren't automatic, and needed judgement from me as to how the pictures would come out.


 

 

 

I got the idea from much landscape painting that's been done in Cornwall recently,
as well as abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko.
But the idea is more abstract impressionism.
I start with a real landscape and abstract it to its essentials.
