We welcomed the makers of Hen House Wines, along with their signature products, to explore inner artistic qualities. What better activities to pair than painting and wine.
Step #1: Open the wine.
I was impressed with the efficiency they demonstrated as the official bottle opener fired up the “power tool” style corkscrew. The speed of this handy little device made by Oster meant the first step was a piece of cake. This group means business!
Step #2: Lightly sketch the design outlines.
Step #3: Fill in the background with the acrylic paints. Thin with water, as needed (or wine if it spills onto your canvas… it works).
Step 4: Fill in the petals with paint color of choice and use a darker hue to shadow and outline. Accent with lighter hues.
Step 5: Fill in the center and give it some texture by dabbing with the brush.
Thanks for the fun evening, especially since I was able to just sit back and drink your intellectually satisfying wines.
A-a-a-a-h-h-h ~ This is the life.
