Talk #1: Keeping technology in its place

Digital cameras may have seduced most of us, but Sarah McEneaney, in her talk at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts last week, mentioned a way that she uses the computer that keeps her vision and hands-on approach intact (this is McEneaney, before her talk).

She goes outdoors and makes a lot of little sketches, then starts the painting, taking a picture of the painting in progress. She prints out the picture, goes outside, and makes corrections on the paper, ultimately transfering the changes to the painting.

While half the art world is madly borrowing and collaging images with this technological gift, McEneaney has devised a way to use it as a tool and stay on course.
