Table landscape. 7x10 watercolor.

Another invented landscape. 
My daughter had some project going on the table and it was covered with drawing pads, pens, a stapler etc. I drew the scene and "melted" the shapes to give the drawing some flex. 
Colors in this one were decided based on what I felt the painting needed.

Fairly happy with this and might replicate it as a large oil.

I left this scan large as the detail is fun to look at. (Click on the image to view enlarged.)

Your invented landscapes are better than any landscape I've ever done, even when viewing it while painting. Lovely choice of colors and lots of great color blocks that move your eye around.
