"Night Harvest" by Sara Starr

The end of the year, our Representational Art League will have an exhibit of wine-related art at the tasting room of Moonstone Crossing, a local winery in Trinidad. We are all busily working on art for this. Here is a start of a watercolor I am doing. This shows just the first layers. The scene is of grape pickers working during a cold October night, picking Pinot Noir grapes for a rose wine. I am working from a photo taken by Terry McCarthy at Navarro vineyards in Anderson Valley. The painting has progressed since this stage and has proven to be much fun to paint.
