Art In the Vineyard 2014

View from the Bench
watercolor
11x14"


Last month was my annual Art in the Vineyard workshop in Naramata, BC.  I taught with the talented watercolorist, Sam Boehner for four wonderful days of plein air painting among the vines, still life painting all things wine, and all while enjoying a fabulous culinary experience at every meal. 
We had a great group of artists join us among the vines each day. The weather was mostly pleasant and the company was delightful. We had the opportunity to paint in 3 different vineyards over the 4 days. The first two were at Bench 1775 looking at the great view. Then we spent a day at Hillside Winery among their beautiful gardens (and enjoying the best dessert ever!). And finally we visited Serendipity Winery
Below are some photos from the event.

The view from Bench 1775 who is now carrying my paintings on their wall. Yay!

Bonjour,

Un endroit idyllique pour peindre !... Merci de partager avec nous ce joli billet agrémenté de merveilleuses photos et de belles aquarelles.
Des aquarelles aussi millésimées que le bon vin que doivent offrir ces grappes de raisin !
Gros bisous ♡
