An ever-growing e-album of reference photographs is our gift to you with the purchase of any Susan Harrison-Tustain DVD/s. (Please note: Sales must be made directly via this website to receive this gift).
Do you have trouble finding the ‘right’ subject for your paintings?
Do you wish you had a better camera or skills to enable you to take ideal shots of beautiful subject matter for your paintings?
Do you want images that are perfectly lit and capture clear, crisp detail so you can paint the delicate nuances that will make your painting speak so beautifully to the viewers of your work?
Do you need images of roses but the rose season is over?
Or are you feeling a little blank when it comes to inspiration?
Maybe you would enjoy combining some of these images to create your individual painting. This e-album has a number of images of the same subject matter – all taken from the same angle and using the same light source. This will enable you to work your own magic!
“The power of a composition and good reference material cannot be underrated. I always say you can be the best painter in the world – but if your composition (and reference material) is lacking – nothing can lift that painting beyond a well ‘painted’ study. What we want to achieve are paintings that say so much more than that”.
The Susan Harrison-Tustain reference photograph e-album could be the answer you are looking for.
The security coded e-album of photographs is designed to help you chose your subjects from an array of reference photographs featuring florals, still life, street scenes, figurative, bird studies as well as miscellaneous subject matter. No matter what your preference, we are sure you will find inspiration here. Additional images will be added to the album from time to time to keep your inspiration flowing!
Susan has put together an e-album of awesome reference images for your use. This is a free, bonus, easily down-loadable gift with the purchase of any Susan Harrison-Tustain DVDs.
You may like to use parts of images to create your own composition. We feel this is the ideal gift for the artist who just wants to have their brushes flying without having to first search for the ideal subject matter.
These images are taken by Susan or Richard Harrison-Tustain. They are royalty-free as well as copyright free – and available only to those who purchase Susan’s DVDs from her website.
Please note it is advisable not to use other people’s reference images if you plan to enter a competition with the painting. Almost all competitions exclude the use of such images. Unless of course, you have changed the composition substantially.
“These images are for your pleasure and to help you move forward with your painting. Richard and I hope they bring you, your family and friends as well as patrons inspiration and joy from your finished paintings! Have fun! Susan”
“Dear Susan, It was about 3 weeks ago I discovered your watercolour portrait video. I had been searching for such a video for sometime, but I notice while there is an abundance of other subjects, this one appears to be rare, at least on video. One is more likely to come across this kind of instruction in oils and they are usually more impressionist, which I find almost useless, being a realist. So, needless to say, I immediately ordered it.I received and viewed it in its entirety yesterday. Obviously you are unusually talented, but in addition to that, the easy and informal, yet very effective way that you educate the viewer as you go along was highly instructive and surprisingly enjoyable. Knowledge of one’s subject and the ability to impart that knowledge effectively to others, are two vastly different skills. Not all artists double as good teachers. Luckily for us viewers, you do. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I found it most enjoyable. I assume you chose the particular subject(s) i.e. the hat with the net and rose etc, for the techniques they present. Your teaching style immediately puts the viewer at ease, it is so clear and natural, and yet there is a definite element of entertainment there somewhere. A most serendipitous experience. Would you consider doing another one?” Regards and Best Wishes. From an artist in Toronto Canada I love my DVDs! They are the best watercolor DVD’s I have. Renee “Your DVD’s arrived in time for Xmas and I must say they make it so much easier to use as a reference. I no longer have to keep rewinding or fast forwarding video’s. The updated gallery and additional tech tips make it worthwhile even if one already has the book and video’s.” Cheers, Bruce Johnson
