Nothing surprises guests more than having their portrait painted live.
They're always tickled they get to keep their portraits as event favors!
Endlessly entertaining, these are painted by hand from them sitting with me.
I do not paint from cell phone photos, I just look at them like painters of the past!
Watercolor is one of the most difficult mediums because there are virtually no re-dos.
I pretty much get one shot to get it right while guests watch!
I have a pager system so your guests don't have to wait in a long line.
This way they can keep enjoying the rest of the wedding or event!
They simply take the pager & return when it vibrates & flashes when I'm ready to paint them.
These favors are perfect for guest entertainment at weddings, corporate events, bar & bat mitzvahs, & pretty much any party imaginable!
Since newlyweds normally are pulled in a million directions I don't expect them to have time to sit for a portrait.
Instead, I will paint your portraits before the event & bring them framed to display on the table with me & it's yours to keep after your wedding!
All the materials used are archival & made to last past our lifetimes to pass down to future generations.
I bring everything I need other than a table (anything larger than a TV tray is perfect) & 2-3 chairs that you would provide.
I keep my set up simple & transportable, no need for a power supply or big set up.
I have even done guest favors on catamarans!
Portrait sizes are 6"x9" for single individuals & 9"x12" for couples & families that prefer to be painted together.
Portraits take 4-8 minutes per person.
Timing depends on how still & chatty each guest is.
I always prioritize guests having a fun time laughing with me over rushing them.
Having fun is a Pigment & Parchment company policy I take very seriously.
