BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Portraits, Inc., the nation's premier portrait agency, is pleased to announce an exclusive association with celebrated artist Ronald Bayens to offer live-event paintings that capture moments of remembrance on canvas. This exclusive partnership acknowledges the growing interest in portraying life's events as they occur resulting in an impressionist piece of fine art with everlasting value.
From weddings and birthday milestones to retirement celebrations and family reunions, a live-event painting is designed to return someone to a special moment or emotion. The venue, mood, sentiment as well as those in attendance are all captured in a painting that can be cherished for years to come.
"This unique partnership is especially exciting as we are affording our clientele the opportunity to work with the master of live-event paintings, Ronald Bayens," said Beverly McNeil, Executive Partner of Portraits, Inc. "To capture the emotion of a special occasion in a priceless work of art, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we are so proud to share the caliber of Ronald's talent in this collaboration."
In addition to the valuable oil painting that is forever a part of the client's life, a live-event painting brings a unique entertainment element to an event. Guests are able to witness the painting created from a blank canvas at the event, while Bayens captures the scenery, venue, family and friends that make the occasion so extraordinary.
With a live event painting, the process begins with the client contracting with Portraits, Inc. to schedule Bayens for their special occasion, similar to booking a photographer and venue for the event. Bayens then consults with the event coordinator to determine the preferred scene to paint as well as conducts research on the venue to precisely capture all elements.
Photographs are discreetly taken at the event to incorporate all components of the occasion and the framed oil painting is completed at the event. Pricing starts at approximately $4500 and prints of the painting and a video of Bayens creating the canvas may be procured as well.
Bayens, a renowned artist with clientele across the country, has created professional portraiture in oils for more than 25 years. He studied at the Ontario College of Art and his famed technique expertly captures the true human quality of his subjects.
