– 2 Disc DVD Set – Over 3 hours of invaluable lessons and tips
A step-by-step guide for creating beautiful watercolor portraits.
Join internationally acclaimed watercolor artist Susan Harrison-Tustain as she applies her ‘naturalistic realism’ techniques to portrait painting in her portrait DVD, where you will learn all of the hints and tips, methods and techniques that will bring your portraits alive with color and personality: ‘Susan Harrison-Tustain’s Watercolor Portrait Workshop’.
Look over Susans’s shoulder and follow step by step – all the way from stretching paper through to fine-tuning.
Disc One: In this tutorial Susan guides you, in great detail, through all the steps required to successfully paint a watercolor portrait.
Beginning with a short animation of the painting coming to life through all the stages, we then move on to stretching paper, materials, the background, and mastering subtle skin tones.
Enjoy a gallery of Susan’s exquisite artwork, and view additional information and resources. This DVD you will teach you the essential techniques required to produce stunning, detailed watercolor portraits of your own.
Disc Two: Continuing on from disc 1, we enhance the skin tones, create soft flowing hair, and learn how to describe the net hat and the fabric of the dress.
The next all-important stage is the ‘fine-tuning’.
Watch as Susan brings the portrait to life with all the final touches that create a naturalistic realism.
