These whimsical, gesture-like paintings capture a moment during the event that are unique from a photograph.
I set up my easel, am right there in the mix and the outcome is a fun memoir.
I arrive to the scene of the event and set up my easel in advance to paint in the background before the party begins. Then, once the guests arrive, I paint guests and take many pictures for detail to be added in the studio.
Having a painter at the event is usually exciting for the guests. Some people even like to pose for the painting! I paint and interact with the guests as much as possible. Most of the information is painted on the canvas while on site. However, photos of the location and of people are helpful for adding details while in the studio.
The final painting will have plenty of color and detail. It will be fun, loose and whimsical and will be a painted memory of this unforgettable moment in life!
