Jac Cat is Back - Art by TET

Jac's Back, Acrylic on Canvas
30x40cm, 4th August 2011
Buy Prints from RedBubble.
Jac's Back is my latest artwork and my first in just over a year away from painting (more than two years if you exclude the single horse painting I did in 2010).

At 30x40cm it's a small artwork but after so long not painting I didn't want to start anything too ambitious. Which was also the reason I chose to paint yet another version of Jac making one of his crazy flutterby leaps. Start with what you know.

If you're not familiar with my cat paintings you can see quite a few in my RedBubble Gallery where you can buy prints of my various artworks.

Jac himself is not really any one particular cat but these days refers to a style of orange and black stripe cat that I've painted many times. The name Jac is actually an abbreviation for Just A Cat and was given to the very first official Jac artwork, Happy Cat Jac, by the person who bought it.

Whilst painting Jac's Back I set up my video camera and filmed some of the process - which you can see in the video below.

Consequently this is also my first painting video filmed in glorious HD video. Unfortunately I wasn't able to film the whole process from start to finish like I've done in the past because of the amount of memory HD video requires. My camera and laptop computer just can't cope and I can't paint fast enough to reduce the file size either.

The style of the video is more of a music video than me explaining anything about the work. If you prefer my old style where I narrate the 'action' let me know in the comments below.

  1. I only just got to look at this. I don't mind the music, but like the narration too. (I think it sometimes used to say who the band was, but forgot to notice this time. Probably wouldn't know them anyway)

    I think you sometimes used to have some low music in background and still do a narration. I like the split screens showing the previous actions.

    I suppose the fast music is in keeping with the speed style, but if it was in the background for a narration, it could still be some slow, peaceful-type music I expect. (we don't get notified of replies in these posts, I just have to check back, unless there is somewhere to select to so it?)
