Ink & Watercolor, 5" x 20"
In anticipation of showing at the Los Olivos QuickDraw Art Festival this last summer, I painted a number of wine and vineyard related pieces that would showcase the beautiful rolling straw-colored hills, dotted with oak trees and old vines, and distant purple mountains of the Santa Ynez Valley in the Central Coast wine region. Truthfully, this vista could be anywhere in California…
I love having fun with perspective in my work, when the scene allows for it. Some artists struggle with it, but it’s always come somewhat naturally for me (or at least, it feels natural now, after I’ve been drawing and painting for over 50 years….<g>)
