Bar Mitzvah Portrait
This is one of the fastest portraits I have ever done! I created Jovon’s Bar Mitzvah Portrait in watercolor in my studio between his Bar Mitzvah ceremony and reception. I had photographer his Mitzvah portraits at the Beth Meyer Synagogue. I liked one of those images and used it as a reference. Originally, I had planned to do an oil painting but that did not work out due to my schedule. So, I painted this watercolor. I am used to working quickly when painting live at weddings and events. But, this was portrait, so likeness was important. I loved the challenge. Jovon and his family loved the painting. You can get more information about my live wedding and event painting services on my new website: www.liveweddingpaintings.com A painting like this can make a unique gift and add a touch of elegance to your special occassion.
