If you haven't watched my IGTV channel on Instagram yet, you must! I launched it last week to share with you my live painting process, which is how I pant live at events like weddings, retail, fashion and entertainment events. And my first behind-the-scenes video is of live painting beautiful Luna Castilho's portrait, a stunning model and TV host from Brazil who is a model for one of my favorite bridal designers, Matthew Christopher. She loved her portrait so much, she wanted to hang it in her apartment in New York, so off it went to her. Super exciting, I love bringing together my paintings with my inspiration subjects!
And speaking of inspiration: leave me a comment here or on Instagram and tell me who you'd like to see me paint next. I'll pull a name out of the hat each week, and stay tuned on my Instagram account @thecristinatudor to watch a new live painting video each Tuesday and see who I paint next.
Today I am sharing with you my second IGTV video where I live-paint a large scale fashion illustration of the talented Lupita Nyong'o, at the request of @musicallytrained This is an acrylic painting on paper, inspired by a photo by Tom Munro of Lupita wearing a form fitting white Celine sweater dress and glam Celine statement earrings in the December 2014 issue of Glamour Magazine.
So whose fashion illustration or portrait do you want me to paint next on IGTV? Is there someone whose style you admire, a famous bride whose dress you love, or an actress/singer who inspires you? A strong woman who inspires you? Don’t hold back, flood my comments, I would LOVE to get suggestions from you guys for painting subjects!
Follow along @thecristinatudor on Instagram to see who I pick for my next video and to see if your choice made the cut! ;) See you guys next Tuesday on IGTV!
Welcome! I'm Cristina Tudor, a Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator, and I paint live illustrations at fashion, retail, entertainment, bridal and lifestyle events.
