The Medicinal Herb Garden
This painting was begun in early April as practice for the Paint Out Lynchburg event. One of the event's locations was the Lynchburg Old City Cemetery. It is a historic park with museums and arboretum. The medicinal herb garden already had a few plants blooming including one of the heirloom yellow roses which immediately made my decision on where to set-up.
I did not make any major changes to finish this work. After doing a few minor corrections I focused on keeping it simple with more dramatic color. Spring colors are fresh and bright and that needed to be emphasized in this painting.
Only one more week of the challenge and I thank you for joining me on this blog.
