This is my May entry to Bill Guffey's blog VIRTUAL PAINTOUT.
Harod's Gate (12x9)

I enjoyed hiking through the historical Old City of Jerusalem. My reference for this painting was on the South end of Harod's Gate. The contrast of the dark arch and the sun lit path made and interesting composition. The second arch provides a repetition of shape, and the man provides a focal point.  There are a lot of subtle colors which are a challenge to paint.
