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.

  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, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-7Z5Q5K, by Gustav Klimt, by
    browsing to wahooart.com who made our excellent print from their
    database of images from western art.
