All Saints Chapel Ceremony – Watercolor Wedding painting { Kathe + Todd }

Wedding Painting of Kathe and Todd. All Saints Chapel Ceremony. 16x20 watercolor on paper. Studio commission.

This is my second wedding painting of the beautiful All Saints Chapel (Raleigh NC) in last few days! Last week I had painted Ashley & Chris’s wedding live there. Kathe and Todd’s painting is a studio commission. I used reference photos to create this painting. However, the painting is not a copy of photo! I looked at many images to create the composition that best captures beautiful wedding ceremony. Once I had worked out the composition, I made a very detailed pencil drawing. I painted in multiple sessions and  finished the painting in many layers. This is different from when I paint live at the weddings. When painting live, I have to work quickly. So, although there are layers of paints, brush strokes are more important when painting live. My aim is simple: to create a beautiful painting that is one-of-a-kind and that captures the story.

While I love painting live, studio commissions are important as well. There are occasions when I am not available to paint live, or the wedding happened in the past.

Next month I will be painting live at the North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh NC. That will be live oil painting of a first dance…
