The fourth colour of wine is, of course, green. By which the Portuguese mean "young". I'm not going to go on about the style of wine, except to say that vinho verde is very nice indeed.
This painting differs from the previous wine paintings in that it's on canvas, and is a bit bigger. As it happens, I'd run out of the boards, but I did have several of these 30 x 40 canvases, which offer a better aspect ratio - and a little more room to suggest the curly "V" on the label.
