Live Event Wedding Painting

On Saturday, June 15, I had the wonderful opportunity to paint live at a wedding at the Allan House in Austin, TX for a lovely couple.  I arrived several hours before the wedding started, and painted in the background.  I did the finishing touches during the ceremony and reception.  It took me about 4 1/2 hours to do the completed painting.  It was a beautiful wedding, coordinated by Pearl Events Austin.

I love the energy of painting live and also the pressure to produce a beautiful final product.  I think the painting came out great and I am so pleased with it!
 My set-up at the venue.  I started with a bright pink underpainting.
