Live Event Painting
Live Event Painting is a unique way to capture a special events, such as weddings, receptions and corporate events.

What is the Process?
Before a live event painting commission, I discuss with my client the 'scene' they would like painted and its composition. I then arrive at the event 2 hours early to set up and begin blocking in architectural elements. As guests begin to arrive, I start sketching in figures. I take photographs throughout the event and I will use these photos to finalize the piece in the studio.

  1. I think having something like this at my upcoming wedding would be awesome. In my opinion this is much better than a picture. A full painting is personal and means a lot more. It also looks better hanging in the living room.
