"Chateau Gevrey Chambertin"
The beginning stages of a commissioned painting that I have been working on since my last post. My clients are wine afficionados and enjoy visiting and learning about the many vineyards and wineries of our world (along with a bit of tasting along the way!).
My compostion was drawn from this photo that I downloaded from them over the internet. After discussion, we decided that a vertical painting would work the best for available spaces in their home (the final "hanging spot" will be decided upon delivery of the finished painting).
After showing them my very simple compositional sketch, they agreed that this is what I should paint.
