Santa Rita Hills
Annotated Video Demo


Santa Rita Hills | 9×12 inches | Oil on Canvas Panel

This is the view from the Lafond Winery’s picnic area in Santa Barbara wine country’s Santa Rita Hills. Lafond is hands down our favorite Santa Barbara County winery. The tasting room manager and staff are good friends as is the winemaker. Plus, many items we have purchased from their wonderful gift shop that have found their way into my paintings.

DEMO NOTES:
0:05 – Working from background to foreground I draw in the darks using raw umber with a dry brush technique.
0:23 – I introduce color. Again, working from background to foreground.
0:36 – Refining through blending middle tones, deepening the shadows, adding details, and laying some highlights. At this stage the highlights are still muted.
0:40 – Final refinement of details, edges and highlights.
