For the second part of the presentation, Kurt will demonstrate on how to set up and photograph the finished painting. He will explain the settings needed on a digital camera that will take the perfect digital picture. From there, he will download the pictures to the computer, edit, size and save to a CD!

Paint The Path To Loose Pastels
Expand your potential Masterpieces by combining different photographs and their elements to create a perfect painting and or series of cohesive paintings. We will strategize basic points of interest, strong composition and special features to draw the viewer into your painting. With a harmonious Color Scheme the planning stage is complete…and now let the pastel dust FLY! We will experiment with various exercises to find the Loose Pastel in everyone!
