Dear Friends, If you are an oil painter secretly harboring interest in watercolor, then we have found the watercolor painter for you. New Zealand artist Susan Harrison-Tustain has produced two DVD programs that are absolutely wonderful for the beginning, intermediate and advanced watercolorists. Although her work appears deceptively difficult, she approaches it in such a way as to make it totally understandable for the rank beginner, building layer upon layer of beautiful color washes to create these in-depth works.

 


The first DVD is Watercolor Portrait Workshop. Disc 1 is worth the price of the video itself, especially for the introductory watercolorist. It includes a lengthy description of materials, stretching and mounting the paper, an introduction to watercolor painting itself, as well as discussion of backgrounds, skin tones, and a gallery of her work.

The second disc includes succinct instruction on skin tones and painting hair, the hat, fabrics and fine-tuning the portrait. You'll discover Susan's perfect palette and favorite materials, how to paint beautiful natural skin tones, master hair, lips, eyes and fabric. It contains over three hours of invaluable lessons and tips.

Join this internationally acclaimed watercolor artist as she applies her "naturalistic realism" techniques to portrait painting. Look over her shoulder and follow step by step--all the way from stretching paper through to fine-tuning. You will find the drawing template, reference photo and Susan's painting on her website www.susanart.com/dvd2, or open either DVD disc from your computer's DVD drive where you will find a folder called "workshop-images" to be used to paint along with her.
