Just thought I would share another one of my sister's live event paintings. For any of you who are new readers, my sister paints at events like weddings and parties.
She paints most of the event as it is happening and then puts the finishing touches on it in her studio. The recipient receives a painting depicting their wedding, party, etc.
This painting portrays the wedding of Serena and Jonathan, a young couple who got married in Newport, Rhode Island last Fall. I took a shot of the entire painting so you can see all the goings on at the reception.
This style of painting is not supposed to be detailed. But as you look at the various sections of the painting you will see many details. Look at the clothing.
the glasses of wine, food on the plates.
I like the blond woman's hair and the man next to her. He was looking down when my sister was painting the guests at that table.
The bride and groom dancing their first dance as husband and wife.
And a man tries to capture the moment with his camera. Nothing escapes my sister's eye or paintbrush!
Even a waitress carrying plates is added to the scene.
One of the bride's sisters and her flowergirl daughters. I love how my sister captured the dress. You can see shadow and light, you can tell the bodice is pleated.
The band is, of course, in the painting.
And a closer look at Serena and Jonathan.
Another one of Serena's sisters and other family members.
A snippet of one of the tables.
A broader view.
