This was a painting of our cat, Cisco, from quite a few years ago. I sold the bench that I originally painted him on and always though about painting him again. Cisco was a great napper and always looked so comfortable. I hope you enjoy painting Sleeping Cisco with me.
This painting is considered trompe l’oeil, painting the image to look realistic in 3 dimension on the surface. You’ll need a surface that a cat would sleep on such as a bench, chair, or a box like I chose. My cat is painted in actual size on a wooden lid of a metal box.
In this class I’ll demonstrate the use of crackle in the background using DecoArt Weathered Wood. We’ll discuss other types of crackle as well.
I’ll present the theory and techniques of trompe l’oeil as we paint our sleeping kitty and his mouse.
Sleeping Cisco will begin as a Face Book Live video class on Wed March 24, 2021, with the second class on Wed March 31, 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: 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.
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.
