We stayed at the Poderi Arcangelo farmhouse and winery B&B located just outside of San Gimignano, Italy. The days were short and the vines were in hibernation, and yet the landscape was still colorful. The wine of this region is the best!
Short days (dark by 5:00) and frequent fog was the challenge for both painting and photography. I liked the contrast and composition of this scene and wanted to bring out the rich color without undoing the mysterious feel.
