Italian Vinyard with homemade paint

Just completed this commission--this one was fun! I worked mostly with hand made paint from pigments I had bought in France--those earthy tones that came straight from the source--the mountains of Roussillion. Making paint is not that hard, just time consuming. I found a great guy in Asheville who makes it in bulk Much more efficient! I have tried some of his paints and they are nice and buttery--he definitely has perfected the craft...
