Autumn in Rural Northern California
I did this watercolor painting on a beautiful Sunday afternoon outside of Fairfield, CA. Some clouds in the sky and everything quiet on this farm. It had rained during the night and the ground was muddy but drying out. The other two photos show a produce stand with a special setting for the season and a vineyard not quite turning color yet as it is still getting into the 80's temperatures. Nice and warm and sunny for painting. Trees are just now showing some fall color.
It will be perfect for painting if the weather continues this way. I want to go back and capture the turning colors of the vineyard, which should happen pretty soon.
