This painting started with a reference photo, and slowly took on a completely different look. I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. My landscapes are always so saturated and exaggerated. The reason for that is because, as people, when we love a place and are in awe of it, we tend to exaggerate those places in our minds when we think about them. That is the precise reason I paint with extravagant, saturated colors.
