Live Painting by Jaison & Stephanie
Live painting brings a unique and interactive addition to weddings, not to mention a personal piece of artwork you’ll enjoy forever. All packages include live painting during the reception, followed by extra detail and finishing work added in the artist’s studio. Choose from three packages and customize your choice of extras: custom framing, varnishing, likeness of family/wedding party, matted prints, thank you cards, and more! You choose the moment to capture on canvas: first dance, cutting of the cake, engagement photo, ceremony or another favorite! The artist arrives early to set up, begins planning/sketching, then starts to paint as the guests arrive.
Fine artists Jaison and Stephanie met while painting murals in Pittsburgh. Realizing their shared interest in fine art, they began to focus more on portraiture and live painting. Both artists work in Alla Prima style in which layers of wet paint are applied to previous wet layers in an intuitive manner. The Alla Prima style brings a much-desired painterly quality to the painting and is challenging and satisfying for the artist while being very entertaining for guests!
As much as we would love to hand over the painting at the end of the evening, we believe that you deserve a truly finished work of fine art. We use the best materials and continue painting in our studio after the event is over. We use this time to add fine details, rework unfinished areas, apply glazes, along with any “extras” you’ve added to your package.
