'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau
|Watercolors By Andrea Burke||
Wow. Word for the day. Wow! Just watched the set of DVDs from Susan Harrison-Tustain. I had been told that it would be life changing. I think my friend is correct! She has had the opportunity to study under her and only her just since 2012 and her artwork is incredible! I've taken from many, many teachers and as a result have a bunch of them arguing in my head every time I paint! Each had a unique style and set of rules. I can't wait til I get to the point where all of this magically comes together and I create my style from the "best of"....ya know? Anyway, Susan's process is very, very slow - like 15 layers of paint completely dried between each layer - and one petal of a flower at a time, or one small piece of whatever you are painting at a time. But the results she gets with the layers shining thru is much like stained glass overlapping. Just beautiful!!! I like her instructions so much, I ordered a second set of DVDs from her this morning! Anxious to apply it all and see how I do! Yay!!!
