NYC Trompe l’oeil Class 2013

NYC Trompe l'oeil Class

Our NYC trompe l’oeil class for 2013 was a success!   We had a full house of students in our tiny little Manhattan studio.

The students began the 3-day adventure with a medallion study.  This is an invaluable exercise that forces the student to learn by repetition.  See post on this study.

Once the students had the chance to complete the medallion study, they began the Italian ornament panel that encompassed of their acquired skills and more.  The faux molding was the next step.

Then, the vertical section was next.  This is how it would be done on a jobsite.  Pierre always teaches jobsite techniques for the professional decorative painter.

Students watched Pierre complete his panel for instruction and inspiration.

Finally, the students spent time on the center of the Italian ornament panel.  The design was transferred with a pounce pattern and students applied the basecoat with precision and advanced brushmanship.

Pierre never promises he’ll always give positive feedback, but he has a lot of good things to say about each student.

The form of the panel quickly came alive with the trompe l’oeil techniques that the students practiced on the medallion study.
