LOGO - Pleasanton Art League PAL

Join Pleasanton Art League (PAL) member Lisa Rigge in a presentation describing the earliest cameras, an overview of their printing methods, and the art of hand-coloring the images on Jan. 10, at 7:30 p.m. To find the Zoom link, visit pal-art.com.

In her discussion during the first general meeting for PAL, Livermore Art Association and Dublin Arts Collective, Rigge will cover how early photography influenced artwork. As photography improved and quickly gained world-wide popularity, the art of hand-coloring photographs expanded along with it. Rigge will describe the ways in which these early photographs, especially Daguerreotypes and Albumen prints, were hand-colored. Following this part of the talk, Lisa will show a step-by-step illustrated example of how to hand-color a digital image.
