Whitney and Kenny’s First Dance

July 30th, 2016, The Westin St. Francis Hotel, San Francisco
30″ x 22″, live iPad painting, pigment inkjet print on canvas

This was created live as Whitney and Kenny danced their first dance. I used an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and the app Procreate. I initially worked on the background using some reference photos I took on my iPad of the wedding couple practicing (including their favorite move!) Then I worked live as they danced and followed up with a few finishing flourishes of color! You can see the whole process in the replay video below, which includes as a sound track the song they chose for their First Dance: A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.


Congratulations, Whitney and Kenny!
