Garden Path

Day 18 of 30/30 Challenge

Local garden center, a favorite place to paint early in the morning, although this was finished in the studio later.  Painted on Arches hot press paper.  While trying to push values, overworked it in places.  Perhaps, I wanted the effect of oils, but watercolor has a mind of it's own. 

Although I wanted this to be simple, it wasn't.  Kept thinking, maybe one more layer of glazing...
