Winding Road InkTober 6
Virginia's Appalachian and Piedmont areas are sometimes called the "Napa Valley of the East," or perhaps we wish that it was the Napa Valley of the East. There is certainly a burgeoning wine industry here in Virginia that attracts busloads of tourists and many happy revelers. As you know I often visit wineries and do drawings there. This is the bottle and glass of my "home base" winery, "Winding Road Cellars." Last year at this time I did a portrait of their woodsy wine lodge in autumn with colorful leaves. You can see it on their website. Here's a study for a black and white illustration for their ads. Winding Road now has a real wine cellar downstairs and party area so come on by with your friends no matter what the weather.
