Claire and Eric

I had a lot of fun composing this tender exchange of vows at Claire and Eric’s wedding in Seaside, FL. Somehow the request for no detail in the faces made it seem very intimate, their joyful emotions shielded from public view. The bride’s color theme included everyone’s apparel and the decorations, which then also factored into the muted palette for the painting. My live event paintings are started right there at the event where I try to absorb the setting, the decorations, and the emotion of the scene. Sometimes I can only do studies, because the composition will require some planning, as this one did. In the studio, I compressed the scene in order to include the first couple of rows of the 25 guests, as well as the cross and the communion table. Event coordinated by Serene Occasions Events.
