Before the painting began, guests had a nice dinner of chicken marsala, chicken piccata, penne in a creamy saffron sauce and a house salad, paired with a glass of our Handcraft White Blend or a Hailey's Signature Martini, both on special for only $5! Artists from the Milltown Wine & Design set up easles and provided an underpainting of the door frame, flowers pot and stairs as a guideline for all painters. There was a lot of layering in this particular painting, so painting shifted around from the cottage wall, to the door, and to the surrounding foliage as we waited for certain parts to dry so guests could return to them to add another layer. The trick with this technique is that the painting doesn't fully come together until the very end! The artists were very helpful, walking around to help with various paint-blending techniques and coloring mixing. In the end, all guests left with a beautiful painting and good times were had by all. Survey says our next Wine & Design event will be in July, so stay tuned for details!
