A local artist is recreating movie posters at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival using red wine for her paint.

Danielle Renee Methmann says she mastered the art of painting with wine at home.

She spends time blending the wine at home before putting brush to paper for her pieces.

Methmann says each type produces its own unique hue, bringing depth to her paintings.

Methmann will be performing a live wine painting demonstration from 5-6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8 at the Hilton Santa Barbara. She’ll also be teaching free wine painting classes on Feb. 15 and 22. To reserve a space in the class, call (805) 884-8535.
