WHAT IS LIVE SKETCHING?
Live sketching is the perfect way to add an artistic flair to your events and create a unique experience for guests. Working in either watercolour or digitally, I am able to create quick, gestural portraits of attendees as a take home gift.
I am currently based in São Paulo, Brazil but am available for travel.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Guests who would like a sketch done will stand or sit for the painting. They are able to watch me work as I create their portrait. Sketches can be full body or portraits.
Full body sketches take 5-7 minutes each to complete, and couples have the option to be sketched together. Portraits take 10 minutes each to complete and are one person per sketch
WHAT MATERIALS ARE USED?
There is a choice of watercolour or digital sketches. Watercolour portraits are done on heavy press A5 size watercolour paper. Guests will take home the original artwork with them. Envelopes will be provided to store the sketches in. Digital sketches are done using an iPad Pro and are emailed as a digital file to guests once the sketch is complete. The images will be instantly ready for sharing on social media, and are available to be branded if graphics are provided.
WHAT IS THE REQUIRED SETUP?
I provide all materials, the only setup required of clients is a table and chair for me to work from at the venue. Ideally 65x65cm or larger. If digital sketches are chosen, a WiFi connection and outlet next to the table is also required.
If the transition between guests is quick, I average about 10-12 full body sketches per hour, and 6 portraits. I am also able to work from photo references if there are any sketches you would like completed ahead of the event or afterwards
