Portrait Gifts For Your Lover
Looking for a unique wedding present for your groom? Look no further than Amorous Art based at the William St Art Studios in Darlinghurst Sydney. Rayni Bonne, artist, teacher and director of The Artful Hen began producing drawings for brides in response to direct requests that resulted from hens seeing her art work when holding their hens nights at The Artful Hen’s life drawing parties.
“It’s such a personal gift”, says Molly Piccirilli, who had one done for her husband. “Rayni puts you completely at ease and I was very pleased with the result. I won’t hesitate to get another one done when I’m pregnant.”
There are a variety of possibilities to choose from including charcoal, coloured pastel or oil painting. Both nude or draped are available for the more discreet and it’s even possible to bring your man in for a private drawing lesson where Rayni will teach you both to draw each other.
Prices start at $250 for an unframed drawing and you get to select from as many as you’re willing to sit for! Private drawing classes last 2 hours and cost $200 including all drawing materials.
