Above picture reminds me of the style of was going through during the late 90's and early 2000's (possibly continuing through to today) and also art Rothko.
For this picture and the one below, I was using the Iphone app Adobe Ideas, the picture above you can see an intense amount of finger strokes and marks, which in the end, make the app run really slowely.
This last image was a quick note of the sea view we had this weekend at Port Fairy. If I worked on this anymore it would of gone more abstract with shapes. With Adobe ideas it's hard to select same the same colour, unless you have the colour pallet set up with these three colours.
