Pictorial Quilt Primer by Lea McComas 1-hour lecture that includes PowerPoint presentation and trunk show. This lecture will serve as an introduction for those interested in creating pictorial quilts based on photographs. The lecture will address the selection of inspiration photos: what to look for and what to avoid, with a follow on to these photo editing topics: cropping and the “Rule of Thirds”, grayscale, posterizing, and resizing. Additionally, the lecture will address important concepts related to colour, such as scheme, value, and temperature. Finally, the presentation will turn to elements of composition to include line, balance, contrast, and repetition, and will conclude with a question and answer session as time allows.
Our first venture into the world of live online instruction with award winning textile artist, Lyric Kinard was a great success.
