    While it's true abstract has morphed into the realm of "isms" they still retain certain qualities within their category. Personally I think these might fall more in the category of Fauvism.

    Well, there can be some "level of abstraction". For example, surrealism could be close to reality but with some distortions like in a wavy mirror.

    So, there are a lot of abstract painting, where you can name a subject, but it has distorted with some methods (as smoke665 said).

    I think it is great fun that with digital photography you can now produce instant abstract art with a few clicks on the keyboard but I do miss the smell of oil paint. Not so much the second but I think you should have a great big print of the first one made if the file is big enough.

    I was never allowed to use oil paints - made to much of a mess! :allteeth: Not really, but I did always find it a lot of work. Got into Prism Colored pencils for awhile.

    While there are some editing functions post that can enhance a digital image, it's possible to create most of an abstract piece in camera. I've been doing a lot of zoom and pull images lately ( Digital Deconstruction ) . Almost all of this was in camera.
