A bridal painting is normally created from photographic references but can be painted from sittings. I have painted many commissioned portrait paintings and have a few private collectors of my art. I specialize in painting people, especially formal scenes. This painting is definitely one of my favorites and I have followed it up with a link to the time lapse of the painting. Thanks for visiting and I hope to paint for you one of these days.
Here is the time lapse video of this painting. Digital painting has so many advantages. It is better for our environment, the final canvas made is also painted again – there are no differences in the final visual art but it still takes a lot of time to get right. Here is the big one though. This piece is fairly large – 24×30 on canvas and to afford an oil painting of this size would cost over $2000. That is the lowest price I have been able to find for oil paintings of my caliber. You can get this size painting from me for half that – not because it’s any ‘cheaper’ but because it took less storage, space, my tools were less expensive, my process cost less – but my final painting will last longer than oils will. My painting is more durable and higher quality. Here is a time lapse of this piece being created from a blank canvas to the final piece.
