Video Archive: Appetizers-single session classes on Serious Subjects – Turn on your Lights 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.

So, I have 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 is Turn on Your Lights:  

Ways to create the lights in your painting – from soft 1/2 light, dappled light, to strong sunlight, candle light and Camp fires. How to paint light, the color of light, adding light and subtracting light and Why.
