Event description

Description

Oil Painting workshop

Humans move and our lives tell stories. This workshop will help you capture not only the figure, but how best to “Tell the Story” in your paintings. It will cover photographing your subject, arranging the composition, and how to direct the eye for the greatest message. We will discuss motion and creating a sense of movement and emotion through the control and choosing color, edges and values.

Susan Blackwood has a passion for teaching artists. Her combination of enthusiasm, encouragement and knowledge is the hallmark of her teaching. She has been a professional artist and instructor since the early ‘70s. For 32 years, she was a professional watercolorist. In 2003 she ventured forth into the thick and gooey medium of oils and loves it, too. Her watercolors and oils have been in many national shows and museums, winning top awards. In 2010 she won Best of Show at the American Women Artists National Exhibition. To see more of her paintings and for a more complete biography, go to www.susanblackwood.com

She lives in Bozeman, Montana with her husband, artist Howard Friedland, surrounded by big skies, mountains, waterfalls, rushing streams and lakes.
