Abstract seascape painting.

I have decided to try my hand at painting. I have always wanted to paint in an abstract, impressionistic style.

A few words about this style of art from

Abstract Expressionism emerged in the early 1940s, primarily in New York, where a small group of loosely affiliated artists created a stylistically diverse body of work that introduced radical new directions in art—and shifted the art world’s focus. 

These artists valued spontaneity and improvisation, and they accorded the highest importance to process. Their work resists stylistic categorization, but it can be clustered around two basic inclinations: an emphasis on dynamic, energetic gesture, in contrast to a reflective, cerebral focus on more open fields of color. In either case, the imagery was primarily abstract. Even when depicting images based on visual realities, the Abstract Expressionists favored a highly abstracted mode.

So here is my first attempt. I am not sure if it fits the bill, but I had fun trying. A seascape.
