June monthly meeting

The June monthly meeting was held on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 7:30 PM at the Cary Arts Center.

Mark Luczak gave a presentation and demonstration of painting in pastels.

Four-step painting process for chalk pastel

Step 1: Inspiration (What do I paint?)
What is my motivation? How do I choose a subject?
Step 2: Preparation (What do I use?)
What kinds of paper? What kinds of pastel? How do I set up the easel?
Step 3: Execution (What do I do?)
Composition, gesture, light and contour
Step 4: Evaluation (What do I think?)
When is it finished? What have I learned? What would I do differently?

The presentation includes a couple of brief demonstrations and some examples of each lesson.
