Chateau Julien Winery
I spent the month of August in Carmel, California in order to do a lot of plein air painting. So you will see a lot of beach scenes and wineries on my blog. I was captivated by the light on the turret. I tried to emphasize how the shadow is harder closer to what is casting it and then gets softer as it goes away. Also, I wanted to show how all the green from the vineyard reflected into the shadow of the wall. I'm not sure this shows up enough, so I may concentrate on it more if I do a larger painting.
