Capturing Priceless Moments! Pencils n Brushes Artworks’ 15 Minute Live Painting Session at #DTunes2015



Pencils n Brushes Artwork - BellaNaija - January 2016002We were called upon as the couple took to the centre stage for their first dance. We had only 15 minutes to do a live painting of the couple and they weren’t going to stay still for us.

But we didn’t need them to. Our only race was against time.

When Tolu, our Co-founder and project manager , told Dr Dunnie that we could do a live painting of her and her fiancé at her wedding reception, she was immediately smitten by the romantic nature of it all. After convincing her hubby, she gave us the go-ahead to start preparing.

Fast forward several weeks after, to the wedding reception and the couple’s first dance. We started painting. Time really did seem to fly, as we raced to beat our best time. Initially, people weren’t sure about what we were doing, but as the minutes went by and as the forms started taking shape, we heard gasps from the crowd. We were done in 13 minutes.

And the bride’s reaction was priceless.

    Ok so they are really talented!

    However, I’m lost…where is the painting of them on their wedding day? i.e in wedding outfits etc..Cos that picture, while painted at the wedding, was not of them during their wedding..I thought that was the whole essence..correct me if I’m wrong

    It’s a Polychrome con el so the wedding gown will not appear exactly in white and aiming factor would be the blend of Pose & Obviously the Groom’s Suit.
    This is really incredible and to have achieved such a feet in less than 15minutes would be a permission to Guinness Book of Record Close By…

    Kudo to the Artist.
