"Exaggerated" landscape

My goal was to exaggerate colors and shapes in this landscape painting. I like the overall attitude and I might use it as a reference for a larger painting.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Sandy Delta Park, oil on 8x8 stretched canvas

Vos tons sont agréables et réchauffent mon regard... Grosses bises.

Looks real to me. Great colors - I could run among the patches of color in that landscape!

I love it! No changes needed, in my view.

Look at that blue water in the foreground! Oh so fabulous! I love that you are always thinking out of the box, Celeste. And you are so successful at it!!

Your exaggerated colors add a nice punch Celeste. That's always my intention when painting--"push the color."

this is absolutely lovely. I think you excel in impressionistic landscapes-- you really have a recognizable voice.

A bit like removing your sunglasses and suddenly seeing colors--I like it.

I agree this would make a larger painting it is marvellous. Yesterday I painted one of the very few works I have done on a very small scale. I will be interested to hear if this does scale up. I am happy with the small abstract I did.

I'd say you've succeeded in your goal. I quite enjoy simplified/exaggerated landscapes like this. Nice!
