California Plein Air Vineyard Painting – Vineyard Dawn Temecula

November 22nd, 2010

Vineyard Dawn, Temecula
Wine Country Oil Painting
8 x 10 inches
oil on linen plein air painting

See more of my vineyard paintings here

This is another in the group of paintings that I did recently at the Falkner Vineyard in Temecula, in San Diego County’s wine country. We arose early so that I could be in the vineyard as the sun came up over the distant hills. The light cloud cover kept the sun from shining quite so sharply in my eyes, which was a real benefit.

This painting was shot under warm incandescent light. Under outdoor light or window light, it will probably look a little bit different. It’s amazing how different things look under different lighting conditions – for example, outdoors while I am painting something, and indoors in a gallery or living room setting, depending upon the color temperature of the lighting instruments.

Some time in the next month, I hope to get up into central and northern California wine country to paint in some of those vineyards. If you know of some particularly beautiful ones, I’d love to hear your recommendations.

  1. Another very nice painting, Karen…

    You are so right about the lighting…. Amazing how much it changes the look of the painting. — as you said.. not just when taking photos but when viewing the painting hanging or painting it.

    Do you have a special set up when you to take photos??
