Blackenbrook Pinot Noir painting

Having an excellent time this week working on the three new Blackenbrook wine label paintings. First up is the Pinot Noir with lifted aromas of wild black cherries and spice... The brief: This painting will be for Pinot Noir and should have warm, red tones portraying the rich flavours of this wine. We are working with a beautiful evening scene from Mapua, near the family owned winery by Daniel and Ursula Schwarzenbach. Keep following this story, will post updates as the works process.
