Drawing the Scene

Posted 24 days ago

Hired to draw CARICATURES ~ I felt excited when the Bride asked me to also sit in the back of the CEREMONY to draw the SCENE. Here's what I came up with.

I only had 1/2 hour to do it. And of course, the bride and groom weren't standing there the whole time and I had never yet seen the groom up close. So I just

went with it. Completely different approach than drawing the CARICATURES. Felt great! and the guests were ooohhhhing and aaaaahhhing as they walked passed it to greet the new couple after the Ceremony.

Follow Up ~ I just found out that this is called "Live Event Drawing". Yes! That's for me!

10 year old boys

Getting psyched for today's event. Yes. 10-year old boys.

Client wants Black and White. To be fast. So I did some troubleshooting here in my Studio. Like ~ Probably not a good idea to color in the boy's lips ~ no matter what I think I see.
