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!
This original watercolor painting is on Twinrocker handmade watercolor paper, made in the USA by old world paper making techniques.
Gorgeous rough true deckle edges allow you to frame it floating on a mat or encased in one. Paintings will be shipped inside mats for stability, except on request.
I highly recommend floating the deckle edged paper for full visual impact.
