Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Plein Air Painting "President Tyler's Eternal View" - Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia

On Tuesday, I shared a painting of a cemetery that was one of my early plein air paintings. Three years and hundreds of paintings later, I painted another cemetery. This time it was Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia.

Once again I was drawn more to the design of the scene. In this case is it was the shadows cast by the wrought iron fence and the light breaking from the trees. 
This one was a lot more complicated than the first, as I couldn't rely on the simplified shapes of the headstones which were all lost in the larger shadow pattern. - Patrick Saunders
