Elegant Afternoon" is a finely detailed study, embellished with rich reds for the palate and the eye. Christensen gives wine country romance a fresh look and a warm feeling with this watercolor painting. He captures hundreds of red hues from the sun-dappled leaves of a Japanese maple to the succulent bunch of grapes. The premium wines he has chosen for this piece are among Napa’s finest, and set the tone for a first-rate experience to follow. The contrasting textures illuminated by the afternoon light evokes a sense warmth.
