Visit to DeLoach Winery in Sonoma

First small study in the southern part of the vineyard. 

Looking towards the Santa Rosa Reservoir. 

Layers of green in the south part of the property. 

The Bees help are an integral part of this organic vineyard. And almost a physical part of my painting... they started getting pretty close towards the end of the painting process. 

Vines and Poppies reaching for the sun. 

Vineyard workers.

A quick sketch of the entrance area at DeLoach.

Thanks for the comments. I wish I could go out more often so the paintings process would be more fluent.
