Canvas: Rio Chama, Near Abiquiu

Digital canvas, 36 x 18

The dark border area is a “gallery wrap” edge that wraps around the stretcher frame. The scene is from a place just north of Abiquiu, NM, where the Chama River winds through the high desert.

Detail above and below shows the impressionistic style.

The image started as three vertical photos, stitched together in Photoshop, then multiple round-trips between Photoshop and Corel Painter, utilizing filters and manual painting techniques.
