Coco was our cat for 17 years. She didn’t actually break a Christmas ball but she was a willing model for many photos and paintings. She and her twin sister Callie were beautiful calicos and were a constant source of laughs and love. I may later paint the actual photo of Coco, a summer version, where she is actually checking out a dead grasshopper.
This painting is mixed media, acrylic and pastel pencil. I’ve painted on watercolor paper matted to 8 x 10″, but this could be done on canvas or wood instead. This is a fun painting for any level of experience. You’ll learn the techniques I’ve used. And you could paint your own cat colors if you would like. Any brand of pastel pencil is good.
Coco’s Mishap will begin as a Face Book Live video class on Wed Dec 2, and Wed Dec 9, 11a – 12:30p each day. Classes are offered as weekly classes to allow time for homework and learning. Critiques are encouraged and offered weekly.
Classes are skill oriented rather than project oriented: I’ll teach the art theory and technique for this painting. I hope to inspire your creativity while challenging you to increase your knowledge and skills.
After the Live portion the class is available as video if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time or if you would like to take the class at a later date.
The videos are available for you to watch as many times as you would like, rewind, and view again. Ask questions in comments and I’ll answer or you can send me an email. Enjoy!
Join me for some fun learning.
Registration information: This class is available on Face Book as videos. When you register for the class I’ll send prep, photo, and line drawing as well as an invitation to the class. You must have a Face Book account to join the class group.
