Beautiful Sunstone Vineyards, in the Santa Ynez Valley, was the inspiration for this custom wedding invitation. I like to show the creative process when I design and paint a piece. It all starts with an idea and a lot of sketching until it is ready to paint. This location is so lovely for a destination wedding that I couldn't possibly capture it all, but I thought highlighting the entrance, and the vineyards would be pretty images for a watercolor. And of course, a wedding map adds an additional personal touch.
