Currently, I am working on building up my portfolio with samples of watercolor paintings of bridal bouquets. To get started, I posted a request on my facebook page for fans and friends to send in their wedding flower pictures for free art. For each photo I made three paintings in three different sizes. This is important because the larger the painting, the more detail there is so I wanted to give customer an idea of what they can expect. The three sizes I chose to offer were ACEO ( which is a playing card sized collectible artwork), 4×6″ and 8×10″ The “bride” who donated their photo to me each got the 4×6″ painting for free which will be sent to them with 8×10″ matting. By the way, as of this post I still can do two more free paintings of bouquets and I also will start asking for pictures of wedding dresses! You can either “tag” SchulmanArt on your facebook page or email the digital photo to SchulmanArt@yahoo.com
Oh, there are so many great things you can do by ordering a custom painting of your bouquet!
1) Order an original for yourself at this listed price and have matted prints to give to your bridesmaids for only $20 each! What a beautiful bridal party favor!
3) Have your mother‘s wedding bouquet painted for her birthday, wedding anniversary, Mother’s Day or Christmas !
4) You can have the florist make a sample bouquet to photograph prior to the reception and the artist can make paintings for you ahead of time—print it on invitations, place holders, favors and more!
