Having given a few talks in the past to art societies on pastel art and my approach to it, I was pleased to be asked to give a similar talk to the Brampton Bryan WI. My wife sorted out a powerpoint presentation that I used as a guideline to work from. I first talked a bit about myself and how I got interested in art and in pastels at primary school. Then I talked about my style and materials used, accompanied by photos of work in progress of a few of my more recent works. I tried to make it interesting for an audience who are not artists and the feedback was positive and I enjoyed the experience. This is the fifth such talk I have given and it keeps getting better as I get more confident…..good stuff!
