This went another direction than intended but feel it fits in the abstract landscape category….

24 X 36 oil on canvas.

I would call it more contemporary than abstract. The orange islands just make this piece. S'not ordinary thataway

Certainly not realist and the colours work well, good choice. Only slight niggle is the sky and clouds, could be less accurate if you see what I mean.

Thanks for the feedback and greatly appreciate it. :)

I completely agree that the sky should have been less defined. I was trying to create a stormy scene with vivid colors in the foreground but that could have been achieved in a more harmonious way. Next time, I will try to avoid this approach.

Strong colors and good composition.

The colors are big-badda-boom, nice! I enjoy how you change the colors towards the horizon...

I agree with Derek that there is something about the various detail levels... but I like the skyline you created and wouldn't wanna miss it. Maybe blur up or losen up that tree on the right side to create some photo focus effect?
