You can really See the Fun that this Party Activity brings by looking at the Responses that we get After the Guests see their Caricatures.

Sometimes they sit down all reserved and awaiting, but they're caught off guard with the Surprise of my Unique Caricatures.

Baby Party

Baby Party coming up. I usually like to draw Bold Solid Caricatures. But sometimes it feels right to use thinner lines, even leaving out some of them

Back Lighting

Posted 12 days ago

I usually try to set up in such a way that people can see the drawings being created. People like to watch. They like to be in my Zone.

But I finally decided that that will not be my primary criteria for the Set Up if I am asked to draw in front of a bright Window. Because it is too difficult to see the faces that I am drawing if they are affected by Back Lighting.

At this particular Wedding Party, I was in that situation. In order for the guests to be Entertained by watching the drawing happen, I had set up with the easel facing the main room. Since I was told to set up near a big bright window, that meant that the people who were being drawn had no light on their faces. Even the good lights that I brought along could not compete with the brightly lit window. Their faces were just too difficult to see.

After struggling through a few pictures, I changed the set up so I could see the features my comfortably. I turned around so the easel was facing the Window. Made for a better Party Atmosphere This time. But I feel like the Clients were missing out on one part of the Entertainment which I could have given them if I was allowed to close the window curtains and plug in my lights instead.

I can only do what I am allowed to do.

Still..... it all works out. A good time was had by all.
