Inspired by real places, but not done from life or from actual pictures, just imagination.

Impressive! Again, in the first painting, you've invited the viewer to follow that path round the bend. In the second painting, I really like the strength, twists and turns of that tree. :thumbsup:

I admire your ability to do this! You created some beautiful scenery and didn't get hung up on details or the need to replicate the "real" colors. I like the color choices in both!

Thanks.
First one is expressionistic, intended to convey the feeling of heat and light of a midsummer day. That influenced the color choice and the key.

Thanks for the encouragement!
Hard to get hung up on details or reality when it's not painted from reality or pictorial representation of reality.
