Painting With Water Collections of fine art abstract photography

Collections

As my venture into this photographic world developed, I found an amazing variety of images were emerging as I explored different subjects, different waves and different light.  What began as a curiosity about the reflection of a single sailboat mast and the unique set of shapes its photos would assume today, quickly grew into a dazzling array of colors and textures that at times felt overwhelming.

To bring some organization and a sense of control to this beautiful chaos, I grouped images into portfolios based on some kind of overall similarities, such as a shared type of texture, a general color scheme or some particular imaginative evocation.  Below are the six current collections of images along with brief descriptions or explanations of what I think holds them together.

I hope that, as they did for me, these groupings enhance your experience as you explore Paintng With Water.

Lost Marbles

These images are full of swirling textures and rich colors that remind one of the patterns found in fine marbles and other types of decorative stone.

All that Jazz

The coordinated chaos of the curves and colors in these images are a fine analogy for the unpredictable beauty and excitement of jazz improvisation, music for the eyes.

New Horizons

A collection of images containing portions or glimpses of the sky, evocative of bizarre landscapes on strange and wonderful worlds.

Broken Rainbows

In these images swathes and flashes of vivid primary colors are like the scattered shards of a shattered rainbow.

Watered Colors

The colours in these images seem to have been smeared and mixed as if by an artist applying water colours to canvas.

Strange Vacations

Calmer waters have allowed the man-made subjects of these images to stay almost recognizable while still transformed enough to seem like the constructions of some truly alien civilization. These are vacation photos from a distant planet.
