The Grim Reaper - Painted with Wine
Painted entirely out of wine this piece is of the Grim Reaper.
The wines that I used were:
- Baco Noir
- Pinot Noir
- Foch

The baco noir adds those dark blue/black shades. I add a layer of foch wine under the pinot noir to give it a more aged/vintage look. The pinot noir brings in that red shade to the piece.

The original is 11 x14" in size but prints are available in both 11 x 14" and 8 x 10".

Melissa Proudlock
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Canada
Niagara based artist, Melissa Proudlock created her first wine painting back in the Fall of 2013. She is a full-time graphic designer for a local winery and while she was creating a wine label of a cello made out of vines, the idea of using wine as paint was born.

Using wine as an artistic material is unique, unpredictable, and impossible to control. Through trial and error, she has perfected her craft and discovered that wine provides a variety of colours. She found that the same varietal from different wine regions results in different colours;
a Pinot Noir from the Niagara Region would have a
different hue than a Pinot Noir from France.
The process of preparing the wine to use as the medium has also been perfected (aging, reducing, and adding lees which is sediment found at the bottom of wine tanks). The wine needs to be the right consistency before she can even begin to create her artwork.

She takes great care in preserving her wine paintings by adding many layers of archival spray and museum quality varnish to save the colours of the wine. This reduces the aging process of the painting where the colours have a slight colour transition from red and purple towards sepia hues.
