Live wedding painting is a unique and artistic way to capture the essence of a wedding ceremony, reception or an intimate moment. A professional artist attends the wedding in person and creates a painting of the event as it unfolds in real time.
A skilled professional artist aims to capture the atmosphere, emotions, and details of the day.
It serves as both a form of entertainment for the guests and a lasting, tangible keepsake for the newlyweds, offering a personalized and timeless representation of their special day.
From the initial discovery call, to adding the final touches, I want my couples to know how each painting is uniquely create not just from my hands but from my heart.
Listening carefully to my client's ideas and visions, hearing them tell their love story and sharing their wedding plans are infused from the very beginning.
When it comes to Live Painting, it always helps to prepare, from a daily routine of sketching to asking my clients for photos of them ahead of time for preliminary drawings.
I start by setting up my easel and canvas at the wedding venue, typically 2 hours prior to the start of the ceremony or reception. I observe the event closely, paying attention to the couple and their surroundings. I work quickly, using acrylic paints to capture the moment's essence and atmosphere in real time. My artistic flair allows me to incorporate both the significant elements of the event and my own interpretation into the painting.
Throughout the celebration, guests can watch the artwork evolve, creating an interactive and engaging aspect to the wedding.
All live paintings are taken back to my studio for refinements. Here's where I will refining the figures, faces and adding in additional details. I will then add a layer of oil paints ensuring it's a perfect and lasting representation of the couple's special day. This process can take any where from 12-40 hours depending on the details the number of people to be added in.
I will send progress photos and ask for feedback. The final stage is to add a layer of protective varnish and offer framing services to my clients. Each finished painting is carefully packaged for either hand-delivery, pick-up at my studio. If shipping is necessary, a deluxe customized shipping box with will be used.
