Live Event Painting - work in progress







This was potentially the most exhilarating and exhausting experience I've had as an artist. I painted a wedding reception last night. These are some images from it. The painting is 20x30 and still needs a few more key people placed and finishing touches, but this is the result of several hours of work while the party went on around me. I'm very excited about this concept and I learned a lot from this first experience. My neighbor's daughter was the bride and they were kind enough to let me use them as guinea pigs of sorts.
It was a lot of fun and people were so excited to see a painting being created in such a setting. I think that was the most exciting part for me - the interest and excitement of the guests.
I hope the couple is pleased when its all done. I will post it later, once they have seen it, but I couldn't resist sharing the experience and the work in progress. Its such a neat idea and I hope to have the opportunity to paint at many more such events soon.

WOW - what a great and brave idea!
Must have been both fun and kind of nerve-wrecking...
Love the result, looking forward to see the finished painting!

I agree with the other comments here! Love the idea but don't know if I would have the nerves to do it myself. Very brave!
