Step One

Creating your wine paint

Allowing your paint to sit will give the dried wine time to absorb the liquid. Most likely you will have to add more wine (or juice/water) as they tend to dry out but be careful not to add to much.

Please note!
Every wine colour is unique so your painting will be different than mine but that’s the fun part of wine painting.
Not one piece will be the same!

CONTAINER ONE:
Pour a small amount of Syrah wine into this container. If you do not have Syrah wine on hand, you can use any left over wine or juice (grape, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry). Last resort is to water down a small amount of the wine paint to create a lighter tone.

CONTAINER TWO:
Open your dried wine pouch and pour the contents into 1 of the plastic containers. You will need a small amount of Syrah wine to mix with the paint. Again, substitute with any left over wine, juice or hot water. (I’ve provided a quick video showing how I mix the wine paint at the beginning of the tutorial.)

Gradually add the wine in small amounts, adding more until you have a somewhat thick consistency.

CONTAINER THREE:
Fill with water for mixing and washing brush.

Before you start painting

create your colour swatch as I did in the video and in the image above.

Adding swatches at the bottom of the painting is a great way to show the different wines to admirers.

Take out your test sheet of art paper and try the 2 techniques below, and familiarize yourself with the wine by making swirls and patterns.

The Wet on Wet technique will be the process that you will be using throughout the painting. Utilize the 2 circles on the test sheet – outlining the circle in water and adding wine, allowing it to spread around the circle.

On your test art paper try these 2 techniques

The Wet on Dry technique is helpful when achieving detail and outlining. 

When I paint with wine I usually start with the outline using the wet on dry technique. This is also a step that I have to do over and over again in order to get those darker shades of wine.

The Wet on Wet technique is helpful when blending the wines or adding a soft background.

Try this with both the wine and the wine mix to see the difference in colours and shades.
