Susan Mains Art School

 

Ok, I know the title is ambitious, but after years of people asking for art lessons, I think I have found a way to do it.  I have started a video demonstration of how I paint, and all I ask is that you give me feedback.

That means helpful comments, not necessarily about the quality of the video.  This is a beta version, and what I am interested in knowing is if I am communicating well enough that you can follow the instructions.

So, watch the You tube video, subscribe, and follow the playlist.  Let me know what you think!

Happy painting.   By the way, you can get materials at Art and Soul at Spiceland Mall.

Violet Clouds Rush In

Rainy Day Regatta 24" x 36" Oil on Canvas 36"

 

The first day of the sailing festival--violet grey skies, gusts of wind, swells breaking over the boats. Then towards evening the light shining on the sails from the west--perfect.

Carenage As Per Your Request

One of the most requested commissions that I do is of the Carenage of St. George's.  It is beautiful, and always changing.  Even tho it is the same scene, every painting is different, because I am different every time I come to it.    So here are two views.  EnjoyBright Carenage 42" x 48" Acrylic 2013

 

Carenage at Night 36" x 48" Oil on Canvas 2013So this one of the "shut up and do it" that I had been talking about doing for over 20 years--painting the Carenage at night.  So I shut up and did it.  Yay me!
