Wedding Caricature Commission

It's always nice to be asked to do a wedding caricature commission, but on this occasion the bride is a friend of mine who helped me immensely when I was writing my novel.  Michelle's creative writing and poetry is first class.  You can learn about and purchase Michelle's poetry works here.
There reception was at the Brig O Doon hotel.  Just a few yards from the Robert Burns Birthplace museum in Alloway.  Funny how all these blog updates seem to tie in with each other.

The way I tackle caricature commissions is always the same.  I do a light pencil sketch to begin with - add the colour using watercolour washes - then complete the picture with a fine nib pen.


  1. That beats the over priced services of the current crop of wedding photographers. Wish you'd been around when my kids got married.

  2. Thanks Mick. I do a lot of weddings. The pictures on location take around 3 minutes each. Much more fun than official photos. Thanks for looking in.

  3. Thanks again Brian, we were all thrilled with this!:)x

  4. A client suggested that I place a "nice painting" rather higher up on the wall of my dental surgery, so that she
    could see while dental work was being done for her. A good idea, I thought, to distract clients.
    My nurse found and ordered this canvas print,, by Gustav Klimt, by
    browsing to who made our excellent print from their
    database of images from western art.


Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.
