Watercolor Portrait Workshop with Susan Harrison-Tustain

Artist: Susan Harrison-Tustain
Producer: Susan Harrison-Tustain
Runtime: 3 Hours, 30 Minutes

Join internationally acclaimed watercolor artist Susan Harrison-Tustain as she applies her "naturalistic realism" techniques to portrait painting.

New Zealand artist Susan Harrison-Tustain has produced two DVD programs that are absolutely wonderful for the beginning, intermediate and advanced water colorists. 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.

Look over Susan's shoulder and follow step by step - all the way from stretching paper through the fine-tuning. 

The first disc is worth the price of the video itself, especially for the introductory water-colorist. 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.
