Live Wedding Event Painting on Canvas in Huntington, NY

Last night, I had a wonderful time live event painting a bride and groom’s first dance at their wedding party at the Harbor Club at Prime in Huntington, NY.  The wedding was joyful, cozy and romantic and I tried to capture this warm feeling in the live wedding painting.  Here are some pics of the process:

Once the background colors are layed down, I start adding the figures. The bride asked to include the band – and I did!

The finished painting after 3 hours of work at the event!  The bride asked to include the first dance, the flowers, wedding cake, romantic lighting, and band.

I enjoy the speed, and challenge of painting the vibe and atmosphere at an event. I really enjoyed live event painting at this beautiful wedding on Long Island.

Live Event Painting at a Retirement Party in CT

I recently had a great time painting a live event painting at an executive’s retirement party in Greenwich, CT.   Here is a little bit about the painting process behind completing  a live event painting!  First, I provide the client with a questionnaire to help outline the key people that the client would like detailed in the painting.  This is typically 5 or 6 faces, but can be more or less depending on time and budget.  At this event, I arrived an hour early (I sometimes arrive even earlier depending on detail of painting desired) to begin painting the background of the live event painting at this retirement dinner party.

Bar Mitzvah Live Painting

As we are heading towards Bar/Bat Mitzvah season, we thought we’d feature a unique NYSketches Bar Mitzvah event.  The Bar Mitzvah painted below was held at Studio Square loft space in Long Island City.  The room was lit with richly colored lights against the NYC skyline emerging through the windows. .  A NYSKetches live event painter set up an easel and painted for the duration of your event.  Guests watched as the painting came to life, and the host family kept a beautiful painting to hang in their home afterwards.  live barmitzvah event painting
