Frequently Asked Questions
What Materials do you use to create the art with?
We use professional, archival materials for all of our art. Watercolors are created on cold-press archival cotton paper with Winsor & Newton watercolor paint.
Our live wedding paintings are created on stretched cotton canvas with Liquitex artist acrylic paint and Grumbacher professional acrylic paint.
How long do the paintings take to finish?
Each Watercolor sketch can take 6-10 minutes to complete depending on how man people we are sketching (2-5). Depending on how large your guest list is will determine how many artists you'll need to get everyone sketched.
For our Live Wedding Paintings done in acrylic, these paintings require us to set up before the start of your ceremony, so we can get in a full 8-10 hours of work. No matter how long your event is, however, we make sure the artwork is completed and perfect. Included as part of the package we do take your painting back to our studio for touch ups, add in additional loved ones who could not be there with you, pets, or any other things you would like to add.
Do the paintings come framed?
The acrylic paintings are on a canvas with the image wrapped around the sides. All canvases come wired and ready to hang the minute you get home. It’s up to you how/if you want to frame them. The watercolors will require framing, for the artwork’s protection from damage and for proper display.
Do we or the venue need to supply anything for you?
We bring all our own gear, including easel, a light to see by, and a water jar. All we'll need is a place to get water and an electrical outlet close by, in case we need to plug in a light.
I want to book you, but we're not in Houston, do you travel?
Of course! If the venue is within 75 miles of our location in Houston (77034) there is no travel fee. If it is over 75 miles there is a $0.53 per mile travel fee. If the venue is more than 75 miles away we do ask for overnight accommodations ($100). If further than 350 miles, we ask that the client provide a plane ticket, and overnight accommodations. Available for domestic and international travel.
Caricatures are excluded from travel outside of Houston and its surrounding areas at this time.*
Can you do a Live Wedding Painting, the Guest Watercolor Sketches, and Caricatures?
Yes! We have multiple artists on our team, we can certainly do multiple services for you!
Where are you located? Can we visit your studio for a meeting?
Our studio is located in east downtown Houston at Art Square 2315 Commerce St Studio 19. We would love for you to visit, due to the private access to the building, visits are by appointment only.
