Vineyards!

I recently finished a watercolor for the online workshop given by Vinita Pappas at Create 38.  It was painted after watching Vinita paint a demo of a vineyard in Oregon.  It was fun to try.  I haven't been to any paint-outs at vineyards but that would be a real treat.  I realized the piece is the third vineyard I've painted during workshops given by Vinita.  There are some vineyards in Southern California.  Maybe it's time to check them out for a possible future plein air paint-out!  Here are the three vineyard pieces~

  1. Well I hope you received top marks from the teacher Sherry because your vineyard landscapes are stunning. I purchased a couple of months back Vinitas original which I adore but you know what I would be really happy to have had yours

  4. Vineyards always look so inviting to painting. I've never seen one in real life either but your paintings beautifully portray the essence and atmosphere I imagine them to have.
