This happy pup is wearing his lucky bandana and ready to go. Painted with a mixture of several wines most of them aged or mostly evaporated pigments. Multiple layers created fur-like texture on the face especially. Pools of wine created a feathered tie-dye look in the bandana. Black ink was used to accentuate the design.
Made with wine and ink
Each wine is different and oxidizes at a different pace. Each painting is photographed after the painting is complete to capture their true colors before they start changing. A painting will continue to change colors over time as it continues to oxidize, this makes it a living & breathing piece of art.
A wide range of colors can be extracted from wine depending on the processing or painting methods used. Either straight from the bottle, fermented in a container or evaporated sludge from an open container, wine painting can be very complex or very simple.
