    Whether you print at home on your own inkjet printer, or need to interact with high-end professional printers to produce large format prints (paper or canvas), our next webinar is for you! It will provide a clear framework and great tips from a world-class expert, Dr Les Walkling

    Les is an internationally renowned artist and educator. He works as an imaging, printing and colour management consultant, and regularly conducts courses. We are delighted that he has agreed to present this, the fifth and last in our Creating Colour series of webinars, and we again thank CSA NSW Division committee members Veronica Colvin and Jean Pretorius for organizing the series.

    The webinar will introduce the five domains of digital printmaking from the perspective of colour reproduction and colour fidelity across topics including monitor calibration, the preparation of digital images for print, selection of print media, colour management, and metamerism. Finally, Les will give some pointers on lighting and displaying prints, as well as hard proofing on a local printer. 

    Not to be missed if you are passionate about beautiful high fidelity colour images in print! Please take a moment to pass on this invitation to any of your friends, colleagues or students who would appreciate this special opportunity by sharing the event link:
