Trompe l'Oeil Painting Techniques: Draperies

-Patrick Kirwin: Coming later this year-2009


Students will learn how to render full-sized illusionist draperies. Included in this class will be sheers, patterned curtains, tapestries and valances; folds and wrinkles will be studied and how they affect pattern and imagery. Tassles and fringes will complete the imagery. This is a highly effective and applicable trompe l'oeil illusion, with three curtains in one painting rendered in 6 to 8 foot heights.

We are lucky to have international artist and one of the founders of The Salon, Patrick Kirwin, to teach this class.

This is an ambitious schedule for a week-long class but Patrick is confident that we should be able to complete the artwork. Level of instruction is intermediate/advanced. The student should have some drawing and painting experiance.

Patrick is a wonderful, supportive patient teacher who has the ability to bring out the best in his students. Do not be intimidated by the advanced nature of this class, you will walk out a much better artist.
