Verdant Vineyard

Verdant Vineyard, L. Daniel, 8 x 8, SOLD
.
You may not think of Texas when you think of wineries, but we have 'em! These are the vines of the Messina Hof vineyard in Bryan, TX where I painted on Saturday morning. The Forsyth Gallery (of Texas A & M University) arranged this paintout to coincide with our Plein Air Austin exhibit which is currently on display in the gallery. It was designed to bring painters from Austin and Bryan together and was a lot of fun for all of us!!

While I love all your work, this is my favorite so far. I especially like the background treeline and the hint of a building. Very nice!

I'm a sucker for well-done atmospheric perspective. ;)

Wow! You make it look so easy, Laurel. I know I've told you that before... but it's a rare quality!! Lovely soft brushwork and wonderful value study too.

these greens are soothing - the shadows work perfectly too - and the grays are also beautiful
