Vineyard of Chandler Hill in Ink

I have been to the winery at Chandler Hill many times,  but have never drawn this particular vineyard.  It is located down by the gray farmhouse.  When I was first looking for my composition, I wanted to include the house also.  There was just no way to do it in the pouring rain.  Shelter is key when painting in the rain!  I am really enjoying this fountain pen!  I've only had it a couple of weeks,  and I now would hate to draw without it!  Just a note, I never use a pencil first when getting my lines down.  I think I lose the fresh,  spontaneous marks that come from jumping in feet first with ink.  Painting number 1575 in 1575 days :)
