Video Archive: Appetizers-single session classes on Serious Subjects – Let’s Face the Facts with Susan Blackwood


for any medium, style or subject matter, from Realistic to Impressionistic or Abstract paintings

Appetizers is Susan’s new, single-session series on how to raise your paintings to the next level with successful concepts and principles.  Each week will feature a new topic.  These classes are for any medium and all styles of painting, from loose to tight, traditional to abstract.

Susan has designed this series of mini classes, one session each on an interesting painting principle, condensed for easy “consumption”. 

SPECIAL BONUS – Also included: I will give each participant one personal critique during the week after this class ends.  You have the option to send an image of one of your paintings or a reference image for a future painting.

This week’s topic is Let’s Face the Facts:

Simplifying Faces.
How important is every detail, what can we leave out and still capture the essence and personality. Big heads and little heads, old faces and young, funny and sad. Let’s learn to simplify for more impact.

And by the way, if you missed one of Susan’s earlier classes, you can always experience them through our Video Archives.
