We Love What We Know!
Mary is a firm believer that practice makes perfect. And she is not alone! Based on experience and inspired by an article she read, Mary says, “Making a painting is a performance that comes after studying. A basketball player practices drills and shooting before going on the court to play a game. He puts in many more hours at practice than at playing. We should do the same.”
Shortcut those years of wondering what went wrong when you follow Mary’s method of study in this video so you can approach your easel with enthusiasm!
“When I first started painting, especially in plein air, I would go out and look around at a site for a bit, and then, without doing any other prep, I would set up and start painting. I don’t do that anymore. I study and take my time and prepare.”
Here’s what Mary has planned for you in The 6 Elements of Design:
From ENT doctor to award-winning artist and past president of the American Impressionist Society, Mary Garrish has fallen in love with making art and teaching the process of creating a strong design. As she says, “There are endless possibilities. If you don’t explore, you will never know.” Mary is here to give you the tools you need to make paintings that will literally stop viewers in their tracks — they may not know why, but it’s all about design! Come explore how to get there with help from Mary Garrish!

I love Mary's art and have been following her career for several years now. I was so excited that she started making videos- it's been hard to attend lessons in person thanks to COVID. I've watched the digital copy of this educational video many times over. I love the way Mary explains her techniques and gently guides the student. It's exciting to see her work come to life. I hope one day to take a course in person but for now this is a great alternative!
