Yesterday’s early morning rain freshened the landscape colors. The clouds filtered the sun until early afternoon.  I preferred the moodiness of the overcast morning to the bleaching sun of the afternoon.

Overcast Morning at the vineyard. Watercolor 10.5" x 14.5"

Thanks to the cloudy sky, there were no shadows to shift drastically every ten minutes.  I decided to work on a larger piece to take advantage of the beautiful, cool colors and the even lighting.

Painting:  Watercolor on unidentified, hot press, watercolor paper
