California Napa Views

Title: Napa California Views
Size: 20 x 24
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas

I layed on a colored and thinner layer of acrylic in dark colors as an underpainting and when dry came back with thick oils in palette knife, working bottom to top. I used soft brush work in the sky and bold bright thicker golds in the vineyard.

Growing up in California and going to college at UC Davis I spent a lot of time in Napa and it is as beautiful as Italy. Similiar climate and wonder they both make fantastic wines! Landscapes with this type of perspective are so much fun to paint...hope you enjoy.
