Exaggerating colour to achieve luminosity

I consider myself a tonalist painter , but have been exaggerating colour
in order to convey the effect of bright sunlight.

This painting was done completely from life and from my colour
sketch posted a few weeks back.It measures 28 x 20 inches.

Really amazing colour and atmosphere.

wow, this is terrific. Pushing the colours has really given it zing... Love the way you've captured the light on the foliage outside and especially on the floor. it's fun to push the envelope a little?

J aime énormément votre tableau. Cette porte ouverte vers la lumière donne espoir. J aimerai beaucoup trouver une reproduction papier et l encadrer afin d en profiter davantage. Cela est il possible ? Merci d avance ppur votre réponse.
