Super excited to announce the launch of my IGTV channel on Instagram today at @thecristinatudor! I love sharing my live painting process with you all, which is how I pant live at events like weddings, retail, fashion and entertainment events. And Instagram's new feature is just perfect for sharing all my behind-the-scenes with you!
To start my IGTV channel, I chose to paint a portrait of the beautiful Luna Castilho, a stunning model and TV host from Brazil who loves supporting and empowering women. She also happens to be a model for one of my favorite bridal designers, Matthew Christopher, which is how I first came across her on Instagram and was inspired to paint her portrait.
For this painting, based on one of Luna's Instagram pics, I used acrylic paints on paper and painted straight on the blank paper, cold, without drawing any preliminary sketches, using only her photo as reference.
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 on IGTV!
