Special Events: Painting with wine at La Perla Boutiques in Saint Petersburg
La Perla Boutiques on Nevsky and Bolshoy Prospects hosted exciting parties for all art lovers. Our guests created genuine masterpieces with the help of our experts.
Wine painting is a relatively new art movement that became popular in the last two decades. Its founder, Philippe Dufrenoy, is a native of Bordeaux – a famous wine region.
Decorative art in mono colors is called grisaille. The unique paintings are created only with dry red wines of different vintage, age and origin. This results in a palette of different shades – from pink and lilac to red and ochre.
The wine grisaille technology is very much similar to painting with water-colors. It also requires the use of water-color paper that absorbs paint well. Several coats are needed to achieve the right density of color. The process requires one to select just the right type and age of wine. To achieve that, you certainly have to become a wine connoisseur.
The intricate paintings by La Perla customers prove their knowledge of both fashion trends and wine.
