Nice semi-abstract.

Thanks. I know it doesn't work 100%, but I like it.

Savannah, that's just what I was going for. This is one of my "Impressionisms in a Hurry." I call the actual technique "schmeer," and I talk about it all the time in order to annoy my wife. ;)

A Verschmeer?

I like it, too. Pretty palette.

ahab said...

A Verschmeer! Wait'll I tell Mary that one...

But on the palette, yeah. The original shot is vertical and included a chunk of almost indigo sky. Really a gorgeous moment. That vertical view may be better. I couldn't decide.

It's so nice not to have to paint the whole goddamned thing before changing one's mind about these things, E-6. Coupla clicks and I'm done.

And why, pray tell, do you want to do that? For the sport of it???

She says my schmeers hurt her eyes. Which hurts my feelings. So I lash out.
