Alla Prima Painting

This is the service I've been doing for over eighteen years. "Alla Prima" means all at first. This is a painting created in one sitting, mostly finished on site. It is an impressionist painting, capturing the energy of your event in rapid brush strokes.

Alla Prima Painting Prices

Current pricing, below, is based on the size of the painting (shown in inches). Custom sizes available. As is common in the wedding biz, a 50% deposit reserves the date. The balance is due at the time of the wedding, including Washington State sales tax, if applicable. We'll need to discuss travel fees (air fare, lodging) for events requiring travel.

24 x 30        $2800

24 x 36        $3100

24 x 40        $3500

30 x 40        $4500

36 x 48        $5500

48 x 60        $6500

48 x 72        $8000

Studio Painting from Live Painting & Photos

This service starts with the alle prima painting. But then I go back to the studio and create a whole new painting, more carefully composed, and lovingly finished, sometimes exceeding 40 hours of work. I use the first painting as a preliminary sketch, augmented with candid photos. You get both paintings, included in the price below.

Wedding Guest Portraits

This is the hottest trend in live wedding painting. Your guests stand before me for a few minutes, while I quickly draw them pencil, then color them in a few strokes of watercolor. After a quick blow dry, the paintings can go home with them. I use a 6 x 8 cold press water color block, to prevent warping while drying. 

Day Rate         $2800
