Trompe L’oeil Oil Painting

Learn to create lifelike realism with oil paint. We’ll begin with a brief study of historical and contemporary trompe l’oeil painters to analyze different methods. Demonstrations will cover creating ideal set-ups, manipulating light and shadow, and a variety of paint applications to create dimensional illusions. Beginning students will build fundamental painting skills while experienced painters can work to refine or master hyper-realistic effects. We’ll create a deep box set-up and a shallow shadow box set-up, and, depending on skill level, students will complete two or three paintings. All levels. 

Adjunct professor at Southern Connecticut State University at Paier College (CT); other teaching: Kansas City Art Institute, Maryland Institute College of Art, Hartford Art School, Fairfield University; exhibitions: Andrew Bae Gallery (IL), Arcadia Contemporary (NYC); representation Sugarlift Gallery (NYC),  Arcadia Contemporary (NYC).
