|Jac's Back, Acrylic on Canvas|
30x40cm, 4th August 2011
Buy Prints from RedBubble.
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.
