The painting is one of a number being auctioned by singer Pete Doherty -- a close friend of Amy -- alongside examples of his own work, which also feature paintings made with his blood.

Of his friend's portrait he said: "Amy was on the phone to her dad when she did that [painting]. She said, 'Dad, I'm with Pete and he's making me draw with my blood!' He didn't like me much, her dad."

However, Amy's father Mitch has denied she created the painting with her blood.

He tweeted: "Do you believe that Amy painted that picture in her blood? Absolute rubbish."

The auction will take place at the Cob Gallery in London where Pete's work has been on display.

Amy's painting was previously displayed but not part of an earlier sale "due to its personal nature".

Pete has previously told of his upset at Amy's passing from accidental alcohol poisoning in June last year, although he also calls it an inspiring time.

He said: "When Amy died I was sat in a room, a matchbox room in London, not able to leave, basically wallowing in my own filth. Literally knee deep in s**t. Literally not able to move.

"I couldn't speak, I couldn't see anyone, I couldn't pick up the guitar, and when I did pick up the guitar it was to write woeful ballads about how Amy wouldn't be coming around tonight. It was an inspiring time."

Other items Pete is auctioning next week include military jackets, notebooks, and his writing desk.
The piece, entitled Ladylike, was created with her own blood.

It is estimated to raise between £50,000 to £80,000 on Friday at the Cob Gallery in London.

Though late Grammy Award winning singer's picture -- said to feature the outline of the late singer's face, with the word ''ladylike'' next to it -- was exhibited at the show, it was not put up for sale because of the "personal nature" of the piece.
It's understandable. Doherty has not kept it secret that Winehouse's passing from accidental alcohol poisoning in July 2011 was tough for him to process.When Amy died I was sat in a matchbox room in Camden Town, not able to leave, basically wallowing in my own filth. Literally knee-deep in sh*t. Literally not able to move," Doherty revealed to NME in April. "I couldn't speak, I couldn't see anyone, I couldn't pick up the guitar and when I did pick up the guitar it was woeful ballads about how Amy wouldn't be coming round tonight," he explained. "It wasn't a very inspiring time."
According to the New Zealand Herald, of his friend's portrait he said: ''Amy was on the phone to her dad when she did that [painting]. She said, 'Dad, I'm with Pete and he's making me draw with my blood!'"
However, Amy's father Mitch isn't going for it. He denies the whole blood letting episode.
He tweeted: ''Do you believe that Amy painted that picture in her blood? Absolute rubbish.''
