Aloha art enthusiasts! As a wedding artist with over two decades of experience, I've had the pleasure of capturing some of the most special moments in people's lives through my Live Wedding Paintings. Whether you opt for a couple-centered composition or a painting with a crowd, a live wedding painting is a timeless and elegant way to capture the most intimate moments of your wedding day.
One of the things I love about painting weddings is helping couples customize their wedding paintings to reflect their unique personalities and tastes, and the ability to create a personalized and unique representation of each couple's big day. And that's why I encourage you to customize your painting to reflect your unique style and preferences. In this blog post, I'll explain why adding a crowd to your painting can be a fantastic choice and how you can customize your wedding painting to reflect your big day. So, let's dive in and learn how you can capture your big day with a crowd!
Couple-Centered Composition vs. Painting with a Crowd
One of the first things I discuss with the couple is whether they want a couple-centered composition or a painting with a crowd. Couple-centered paintings are focused on the groom and bride, while paintings with a crowd have more people in them. The more couple-centered the paintings, the more detailed and realistic they are, and they capture the couple's essence better, while paintings with more people are more abstract and focused on the event.
Can I Choose Who Is in the Painting? And How Much Will Extra People Cost?
Many clients often ask me if they can select who appears in their Live Wedding Painting and if there are additional costs for adding extra people. The answer is yes, you have complete control over who appears in your painting. I offer various packages that allow my clients to add as many people as they want without necesarily incurring additional costs for each person. The total cost will depend on the package you choose, and I am always happy to discuss this with you during our complimentary phone consultation.
When choosing who to include in your wedding painting, the possibilities are endless. Some clients prefer to have a couple-centered composition with just the bride and groom, others only want to add their pets to the couple-centered painting, some people want their closest ones, while others want to include their entire wedding party, family, and guests. The choice is entirely up to you, and I'm here to help bring your vision to life.
My artistic style mixes realism and impressionism to create lifelike and expressive oil painting portraits. More time and space translate to more realistic details and less expressive synthesis and abstraction.
As mentioned earlier, the cost of adding extra people to your wedding painting will depend on the package you choose. However, I want to emphasize that my pricing is not based on the number of people in the image, but on the time invested in creating the painting and the size of the canvas. That means that even if you want to include a large crowd in your painting, it won't necessarily cost you more than a couple-centered composition of the same size.
It's important to keep in mind that the more people you want to include in the painting, the larger the canvas size and the more time it will take to complete. This is because the most time-consuming part of creating a live wedding painting is painting the human figure of each person. The larger the canvas and the more time invested, the more details and realism can be added to each portrait. This is why I recommend larger canvas sizes for paintings with a crowd.
To give you an idea of what to expect, I offer four different packages on my website based on size and time invested. However, I am always open to personalizing the package to fit each client's unique needs. This means that if you want a different canvas size or more time invested, I can create a custom package just for you.
I want to reassure you that you can choose who is in your wedding painting and how many people you want to include. My job is to bring your vision to life and create a painting that captures the essence of your big day. Whether you want a couple-centered composition or a painting with a crowd, I am here to help you every step of the way. So, let's create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece together!
The Beauty of a Crowd in Your Wedding Painting
There's something magical about a painting with a crowd. Not only does it capture the essence of your wedding day, but it also immortalizes the people who made it special. A painting with a crowd is a great way to remember who was there, and you can look back at the painting years later and be transported back to that special day.
It also adds a sense of energy and excitement to the artwork. It can also add depth and interest to the painting, as the
various people and interactions create a dynamic and visually captivating scene. It's a beautiful way to showcase the love and support of family and friends who were present on your big day. When you choose to include a crowd, you'll be able to remember all the smiling faces, happy tears, and heartfelt moments that made your wedding day unique. Plus, it's a great conversation starter for visitors to your home who may not have been there on your wedding day. They can see who was there and learn more about your special day.
Adding a crowd to your wedding painting is a great way to personalize your artwork and capture the essence of your big day. With my different packages, you can choose who is in the painting and how many people you want to include. Remember, a live wedding painting is a timeless and elegant way to capture the most intimate moments of your wedding day, and I'm here to help you customize your painting to reflect your unique style and preferences.
