Provisional Programme

2.30-3:30 pm – David A. Hardy is the longest-established living space artist, having illustrated his first book in 1954. For more details of David’s career see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_A._Hardy and of course his excellent web site here http://www.astroart.org/

David will be presenting a review of space/astronomical art since the earliest days, from Lucien Rudaux and Chesley Bonestell, and of course R.A.Smith, but of course leaning heavily on his own work too! It includes images of how we thought space travel would develop, back in the 50s, and how our views of the universe have changed, from our own Moon and planets through to extrasolar planets and deep space. There will also be a short Tutorial on how to produce a ‘painting’ in Photoshop.
