Vista through the Trees

This lovely vista through the trees is on the west side of Montelle Winery.  Arriving late after a morning broadcast on Great Day St Louis, I was quickly drawn to this place.  I love this side of the winery,  more secluded than the sweeping back side.  The babbling of the koi pond was my companion as I painted these trees,  background first.  Working around all masses negatively gives a very organic feel to all.  I met some of those edges while leaving others hard.  I was so honored to have been awarded an Honorable Mention for this piece at the Montelle Winery Paint Out.  Painting number 1571 in 1571 days.
