Autumn Winery Colors

My destination winery for "Wine Saturday" was "Miracle Valley" Vineyard, hidden away deep in the countryside near Delaplane, Virginia. It was a splendid autumn day, with crystal-clear skies and colorful trees. I did my usual sip and draw, choosing their tasty sweet rose'. "Miracle Valley" is run by military veterans who find jobs and new lives for wounded warriors. The grounds are beautifully kept and in one hilly space is a metal angel which was created to honor those who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks as well as the wars which followed them.

Drawing is colored pencil and Pitt technical pen on sketchbook page, about 7" x 10".
