Painting the Evening at a Company Holiday Party

Posted by on Dec 10, 2021 in Uncategorized | No Comments

At this company holiday party in the historic Phelan Building in San Francisco (see the Wikipedia description and also this great article on the history of the building), I live-painted the scene using an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and the Procreate app. My live painting was projected in real time on two large screen on either side of the band (shown in the photos below). Guests enjoyed watching the painting evolve throughout the evening. If you watch the replay video above you’ll notice that the beginning canvas is a collage I put together based on historical photos, plans, maps, textures and documentation relating to the Phelan Building. My final painting includes the band members of Hella Fitzgerald and dancers Rebecca, Calvin, Jade and Leo.
