"Chateau Gevrey Chambertin"

After stretching my canvas (36" X 48"), I applied a yellow oxide underpainting (acrylic). Next, I drew a somewhat faint and detailed graphite layout of the architectural elements of this old winery. I only do this much drawing when it is necessary to get all of the details "just right". Then, I began by laying in the darkest as well as some of the mid-tone areas of the composition.
