Ste. Chapelle Vineyard
9x12, soft pastel
Day 7 of 30
Yesterday morning was a bit rainy...but several of us ventured out for a plein air paint-out at the Ste. Chapelle Winery south of Nampa, Idaho. As we arrived the rain clouds were moving out, allowing the sun to shine for a brief period of time. I was able to capture 75% of this painting before the rain clouds moved back in. I finished it at home in the cozy warmth of my studio.
So as you see, I continue my attempt to paint and improve with landscapes. By now I've decided to embrace the colors I see (or, at least the colors I think I see) in lieu of realism. Color just makes me happy! I hope you enjoy!
