MLG Monthly Meeting - May Painting for the Australian Bird Guide Presented by Peter Marsack

MLG Monthly Meeting - May Painting for the Australian Bird Guide Presented by Peter Marsack What: Birdwatchers are among the most environmentally-aware and engaged groups in the wider Australian community, and bird guides sell in the hundreds of thousands. Peter was one of the artists for the Australian Bird Guide, published by CSIRO in 2017. He will talk about the process involved in producing the original artwork for the Guide: three artists painting over 4,700 images, a planned five-year project that took almost ten: - Why did this seem like such a good idea - How were the images painted - what challenges had to be overcome - Why did it all take so long? In the course of his talk he’ll touch on the way the changing expectations of birders have driven changes in the nature and scope of field guides. Where: the back room of the Murrumbateman Country Inn When: 7.00pm Thursday 2 May. If you would like to have dinner at the pub, we suggest you arrive by 6.30pm RSVP : All are welcome but please RSVP by replying to this email by 29 April to help us with arrangements, crowd control and warning the pub.
