As a Live Event and Wedding Painter I, Nicole Lane, will create your painting live during the event of your choice for you and your guests to enjoy.  

The process:

 First we check your dates of the event against my schedule, and book it in the calendar. A 30% non-refundable downpayment is required upfront to secure your bookings. At time of booking we will fill out initial model release and preliminary contract forms.

 Then I work with yourself and/or planner and decide on the event of your choice to paint. For weddings, a popular choice is the first dance. At this time you also decide on your “VIP People” to add to your finished painting- these are the important people at the wedding you want to include. I can include up to 6 extra people in the final painting, conditional on size of painting and the composition.

 On the day of the event, I will bring the pre-prepped painting, I will be painting anywhere from a day in advance to a few hours before the event starts to create background painting and setting. 1 hour before the event starts I will take a group photo of all the VIP people and bride and groom for reference later. If it is a surprise I can take my own references discreetly.

 When the setting is chosen and picture taken, I will commence painting the guests including bride and groom, as well as refining the background and creating the atmosphere of the event. I will also entertain your guests, and talk to them about the painting process – Many people have never seen the process of a painting and enjoy the conversation while watching the magic happen!

 When the event if finished, I will take the painting back to my studio and finish the painting. This can take anywhere between 4-10 weeks due to the natural drying and layering process of oils and on the commission size and level of detail involved. Within one week of painting at the event I will send you the thank you cards and follow up email on the painting, to discuss any changes or corrections.

 After approval of final product, and the final payment received, I will then arrange to either ship, deliver, or for you to collect the finished painting at my studio. You will also receive high quality digital copies of the final painting for you to use as gifts at this time.

At all times you will be informed of the process by email, and phone, and text.
