Getting the Family Together for a Party

Posted Dec 2013

Such Fun pictures. Look at how much healthy Fun these people were having with their Caricatures. My pictures sure perked up the atmosphere after we all arrived during in a heavy snowstorm. This was what I drew at the Party described in the previous post where the birthday mother had created a magnificent Winter Wonderland for her daughter.

Some of the pictures just show what I saw and what I drew. But I was lucky to be able to snap a few photos of the animated reactions the people showed After I drew what I saw. People loosening up. I coined the phrase, Being Party. People being party.

BTW ~ Here's a note that my Client sent me after the Party: Quote "Hi Alison! I wanted to thank you for the magnificent job you did at 'girl's name' Birthday party! You were the hit of the party. I'm so glad we were able to have you join us. Thanks Again" Unquote

Large Party Scene

Posted Dec 2013

My Agent is sending me out to Paint the Whole Scene at a Party.

So I practiced a Scene when I was in Penn Station. Took a photo of the scene to show you, but I did not look at the Photo while I was drawing. I was working live, On the Spot. Just using old markers and small computer paper this time ~ to get comfortable with an ever-changing scene. Success! I loved it. I'm looking forward to the Event (where I would Not be tempted to focus on a garbage pail ~ lol ~ Parties are usually dazzling with their Party Decorations!)

Note: This picture is Unfinished. I only had about 20 minutes to work on it before I had to get to the Corporate Holiday Party.

So now I am also offering Full Party Paintings. That''s CARICATURES, FASHION SKETCHES, FACE-PAINTING, FREEHAND GLITTER TATTOOS, BALLOONS, And Now PARTY PAINTINGS Too!

Anything can be Caricatured

Posted Dec 2013

Not just faces. At this event for a Liquor Store, my client asked me to draw the outside of the Store. So there I was, set up in a Parking Lot, and coming up with this design.

It was okay out there ~ very little traffic :-) But it started to get cold. So I came home after the event to see that one of my initial idea had been forgotten. Because I started hurrying to get back inside the warm store to draw the people. I planned on using the 'notice me' trick of putting red in the center of the picture. By coloring the awning the red/white/blue brighter than it really was. Oh. Yellow/green has a good feel to it, but I had planned on that red/white/blue. So I added it here if PhotoShop. Just to see. And yes ~ it is better.

Anyway, my client did like the yellow/green picture just fine. Later during the event, he asked me to draw the inside of the place ~ where he had his 'Party' set up. I managed to include him in my design. Like the maestro conducting the event. So much more is said in a Real Caricature than in a Photographic Representation of a scene.

Real Art is made by People who are Alive.
