074 - Jennie Lou Tucker, Fine Artist on Live Event Painting
Today we are talking about live painting! Jennie sat down with me to share her process for live painting and the types of events she paints for. We also talk about how she schedules these events, what travel looks like and which supplies are her go to's for live painting. If you've ever thought about live painting or wondered what it's like, this is the episode for you! From Jennie Lou Tucker: While studying graphic design at Baylor University, I began painting to escape the dreaded hours making art with a computer. I had not picked up a paintbrush since elementary art class, but blending colors came easily, and organic shapes appeared before me on my canvas. Since then, painting has become a quiet expression and gentle release from everyday life. After graduating from college, I immediately set out on a grand adventure as a Teach for America corps member teaching middle school world history in a rural town near Charleston, South Carolina. As my short teaching career came to an end, I was not quite ready to set my roots in one place. So I hit the road again, only to find myself destined for fresh mountain air. Originally I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, but currently, I reside in Denver, Colorado. The mountains and the great outdoors inspire me every day and remain a constant reminder of the natural beauty all around me. Technically, I initially began using oils, but have since realized how acrylic’s fast-drying nature is more conducive to my quick painting style. Head over to my Commissions page to ask me about personalized paintings. We will find a size that fits both your budget and your wall space. Specifically, I am most passionate about "live wedding paintings", and specialized commission pieces, but my main concern is equipping you with a timeless piece of artwork to hand down for generations. Thank you for your interest in my artwork, and I look forward to hearing from you! xo Jennie Lou Website: https://www.jennielouart.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jennielouart/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/jennielouart/ Links: To get 50% off your first year with Honeybook, go to positivelycreative.net/honeybook!
