Katie and Richie. Watercolor. 12×16. Alla Prima. I did this watercolor painting on the spot at All Saints Chapel in Raleigh. It is a beautiful church and it was a beautiful wedding. I decided to use watercolor since it allows me to work quickly and I like the spontaneous look of the finished painting. This was a surprise for the bride. I was working with Tracy Adams of Adams & Events. I arrived before the ceremony and decided to paint from the balcony. There are quite a few challenges with doing a live event painting. But, that’s what gets me out there painting.
