Video Archive: Appetizers-single session classes on Serious Subjects – Sweet, Soft and Sexy Edges with Susan Blackwood


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

Appetizers is Susan’s single-session series on how to raise your paintings to the next level with successful concepts and principles.  Each class 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 a 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 topic for this class is Sweet, Soft and Sexy Edges:

How, where and why to  – seduce those edges in your paintings… into mystery for more successful paintings. Yes, I just wrote “seduce” those edges. What are the edges that are easy on the eyes of our viewers. What edges slip into the shadows only to be discovered as the viewer lingers. How do we do those kinds of edges for more successful paintings from landscapes to critters, still lifes to people.

We will do exercises to practice these edges in class. So bring your oils, watercolors, acrylic, etc. Let’s Swing our brushes into wonderful edges!

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