I work in a Painterly Realism which allows for the beauty of loose brush strokes in a realistic framework. I prefer subjects that capture light & mood with specific focal elements such as an up close composition of the bride & groom, rather than a broadly depicted wedding scene. This creates a truely Expressionistic work of Art that will be treasured for the beauty of the piece as well as the memory of the day.
What does a live event painter do?
I will arrive at your venue about an hour before the event, get set up, take photos, study your face, style and setting and develop a couple composition sketches. I will set up to paint in a position that is advantageous for myself and your guests, and does not interfere with other vendors or activities. During the ceremony and throughout the reception I will begin working from both the live view of the Event and any pictures that are helpful in the process. I may move my easel during the evening as needed and I will position myself so that guests can view the painting and/ or sketches in progress! Once a painting is completed I will set it on a display easel for guests to view and enjoy.
