Painting from a Reference Photo Demonstration
Arrillaga Family Recreation Center
701 Laurel St, Menlo Park, CA
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but only if you know how to use it as a reference for creating great art. Join Jeanne de Campos-Rousseau at Menlo Art League's November 13 meeting to learn how to make a masterpiece with the camera as a starting point. The meeting at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center in Menlo Park starts at 7:30 pm.
Jeanne will enlighten us with her lecture and slide show entitled, "Your Camera, Your Computer and Your Paintbrush." After receiving a B.S. in computer science, she spent 25 years in the aerospace industry before retiring to resume her heart's desire - creating art.
She is a watermedia artist, focusing on landscapes and portraits, using watercolor, acrylic or a combination of medias. Jeanne works to capture and frame photographs so that most of the design work is done by the camera. She will share with us what she has learned about telling a story and sharing special places with the viewer using a camera and computer as a guide.
