Victoria and Steve asked us to make a canvas for their friends and family to colour in at their festival style wedding.
The couple had their wedding day at Cornish Tipi Weddings, so Maria began by using elements from this beautiful venue as the backdrop for the artwork. The canvas features a forest setting, with the couple rowing rowing across a lake towards their ceremony. These first couple of pictures show Maria getting the artwork ready for colouring in the Fancy Features studio.
Victoria & Steve have also travelled the world, Victoria writing a travel blog, Steve making a film that starts with astronauts seeing the earth from space. These themes were included with illustrations of planet earth lanterns hanging from the trees with papel picado bunting inspired by the couple's travels in Mexico.
We often pre paint large background areas on our commissioned artworks, this helps to give the finished paintings structure and the shades can be matched to a colour theme. Victoria and Steve specified a colour palette for their colouring in canvas and we even mixed custom paint shades for the paint pens that everyone used to colour in the picture at their wedding reception. Here's a couple of pictures from their special day.
