Program / Demo:  Kurt Weiser: "Creation of a Pastel Painting from Start to Disc"

Join Kurt in the pastel demonstration of his award winning painting “Autumn Color”. Enjoy his slightly “unorthodox” style by experimenting with color undercoats and textured surfaces while trying different techniques with washes and layers of pastels.

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!
Kurt is a Signature Master Circle Pastelist with The International Association of Pastel Societies, and a Signature Member with Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod and Connecticut Pastel Society. His success as an artist includes national and international awards for his pastel paintings, while having been featured in Artist Magazine, Horticulture Magazine and The 2010 Best of Worldwide Landscape Artists Book.

Kurt is also “a Stay at Home Dad” artist. He steals time to paint when his youngest one naps. Kurt feels very fortunate to have an awesome supportive wife who loves his art and encourages his passion to continue painting and growing as an artist.
