"I was lying on my back, near the river, my eyes staring into the deep blue of the sky. At the edge of my field of vision, I could see the rooves and chimneys of buildings, lost in the vastness and giving meaning to it. What I saw could be a way to paint."
Claude Francheteau paints contemporary and yet paradoxically classical skies.
With the help of modern acrylic paints and digital photography, depicting skies in the ancient way with a modern eye. A sincere kind of blue sky thinking."

Painting with Light
Although not from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, we continue to celebrate creativity this week by highlighting a great presentation every day, today turning our attention to "Painting with Light" from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10. Photographer Mateusz Staniewski presents a selection of light works and a series of incredible images that were all created without any use of Photoshop. In the presentation, he shares various techniques on how to paint with light.
A French Magazine About Graphic Design and Painted Fantasy Worlds
Presentations Alexandre Dimos is a French graphic designer, and in his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) he talks about Back Cover. As he explains, he couldn't find what he really wanted to read in France, and so he helped create an independant magazine focusing on thinking and analyzing graphic design and typographic practices, and to a larger extent, visual arts. Miro Pecho is a Slovak painter, and he uses his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1) to explain how different fantasy worlds influence his paintings. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Malaga Vol. 3, pictured above (the event was held last night). The other addition is for PKN New Orleans Vol. 7, which is happening tomorrow night. The image below is not a poster or a flyer, but rather part of a call for presenters for the next PKN in Genoa (or Genova), and we loved it so much we wanted to share it. All roads lead to PechaKucha! The event itself will take place on November 23. Calendar There are two PKNs on the agenda tonight (October 3), PKN Bilbao Vol. 13 and PKN Szczecin Vol. 1. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday: PKN Pittsburgh Vol. 13, PKN Moncton Vol. 7, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 6, PKN Doha Vol. 6, PKN Vaxjo Vol. 12, PKN Kolding Vol. 18, and PKN New Orleans Vol. 7.

Painting with Light
Light painting isn't a new art form by any stretch, but recently it's been revitalized and enhanced by the DIY community. In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, we see the extent to which the medium has grown. In his presentation (from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10) Mateusz Staniewski enlightens us on the finer details of the photographic art. The techniques he goes into include light-stenciling, freezing, and painting; when combining these methods the results are both literally and figuratively luminous. There's much more to be seen than said here, so for further illumination check out the full presentation.
If you've ever wanted to see the inside of an artist's mind, this is a great way to do it. Bob Richardson shares his unique mode of painting using a grid-system, and in "Systemic Painting" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 explains how his art style has changed over the years. He uses a variety of mediums, including canvas, silk screen, and watercolor paper. After retirement, Bob revisited his systemic painting method and experimented with new compositions and brush widths to create effective pieces of art.
