Painting vineyards is always romantic. There's nothing quite like setting up my painting easel in a lush vineyard, grapes all around me. I especially like that short time when some of the grapes are almost ripe and some still quite green. The translucent colors range from gold to rich purples and are a joy to paint!
I painted this using a demo sketch and reference photo from a few years ago when I taught a workshop in Tuscany at the Watermill at Posara. I have a stack of sketches and photos from that workshop!
This painting of grape vines is about the golden light before the sun starts going down. A stroll in a vineyard, ancient grape vines tumbling across a rustic arbor in the warm bright sunlight. A nice Italian dinner soon with a glass of wine made from these same grape vines last year. And that is true romance in the magic of the Italian sun!
