Follow the Steps Below to Locate a Live Event Painting Price Quote

Live event painting is my most expensive service because of the additional time and work that goes into each creation.  When possible, I will create the background for the live painting in the studio before the event. During the event I will paint in as many figures as possible and take photographs for reference. After the event I will make add more realistic details and final touches before delivering your memory to you. Below you will find package prices and detailed information on available sizes.

  • Prices are calculated from material costs, size, and work hours based on detail complexity. Personalized cost estimates available on request.

  • Custom plans available to work within your budget.

  • All costs estimated without shipping. If you need shipping, the cost will be determined by size, weight and destination.

  • Travel costs not included in these prices.  No travel costs apply for travel less than 60 miles from New Orleans.

STEP 1: Artistic Style
Pick the artistic style that you prefer from the examples below. Then scroll down to see what this style costs for your desired canvas size and portrait package. 
 

Abstract Style

This style is the quickest to complete. Little to no facial features. Thick, textured paint that stands out from the canvas is applied with a palette knife.

Semi-Impressionistic Style

This style combines impressionistic paint textures with semi-realistic portrait techniques.  Figure details are simple but recognizable.

Realist Style

In the realist style, many thin layers of paint lay flat on the canvas. Highly detailed, larger portraits take the longest to complete. 

STEP 2: Portrait Packages
Pick the portrait package below that best matches the number of recognizable portraits you desire.  These portraits are usually the bridal party, family and friends, and are done with greater detail.  Your scene can be filled with "background" guests as needed.  These figures are less detailed but will still be based on actual attendees of your event.
