Victoria and Steve asked us to make a canvas for their friends and family to colour at their festival style wedding.
The couple had woodland tipi camping at their wedding day, so Maria began by illustrating this as the backdrop for the artwork. The canvas features a forest setting, with the couple rowing rowing across a lake towards their ceremony.
Victoria & Steve have travelled the world, Victoria writing a travel blog, Steve making a film that features astronauts seeing the earth from space. These themes were included using planet-earth lanterns hanging from the trees, and 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 canvas and we even mixed custom paint shades for the paint pens that everyone used to colour in the picture at their wedding reception.
