Village Winery

Saturday's winery visit brought me to Village Winery in historic Waterford, Virginia. It's set in a park-like paradise which was glowing with sunlit spring green. The vines were sprouting fresh new leaves and visitors sat on the grass sipping nectar. Village Winery specializes in elderberry and apple wine as well as the more familiar grape varieties. I enjoyed a glass of the apple wine while drawing this view of their old barn. This is an "authentique" "plein air" artwork, done all on site with no studio alteration other than preparing it for placement here and a bit of enhancing the contrast. It's Pitt brown technical pen and colored pencil on sketchbook page, about 10" x 8".
