Learn how to capture the different leaf surfaces: shiny, matt, smooth, undulating, puffed, veined leaves. Mix natural greens that are rich, luscious and vibrant. Susan shares her knowledge to help you to build a great repertoire of green mixes. These methods, skills and new understanding of how to mix colour can be applied to mixing any colour at all!


In addition and as a special bonus Susan shows how 'the 5 crucial elements for a successful painting' will help you gain the expertise to create your own Masterworks. Learn to understand how Colour, Colour Temperature, Tone, Intensity and Edges will revolutionize how you observe, understand and paint any subject. Susan will share how this knowledge will help you to capture emotion, create an impact, convey a message and portray a reality that will reach out of the frame and connect with the viewers of your work. Learn the essential observation skills that will help you to analyze and evaluate your own work.


Susan does not hold anything back! Her DVDs are created to teach you the skills she has learned over her lifetime of painting - so you too can feel the excitement, confidence and joy of painting that comes hand-in-hand with the impact of these teachings. Using the leaf studies as a 'generic example' - you can learn to apply your new skills to any subject. You will discover how to reserve highlights; create glowing watercolour underwashes; achieve translucent layers of watercolour with Susan's unique Priming Method; mix clean, fresh, natural colours; create luminous clean watercolour shadows; mould form; attain smooth natural-flowing washes and blends of colour and so much more. Numerous on-screen text boxes highlight the major points Susan does not want you to miss. With nearly 5 hours of teaching on 2 discs, filmed in wide-screen with 3 cameras, this is an invaluable resource for watercolour artists of all levels and abilities.

Review by David
If you are interested in painting realistic flora, this is a must. I am studying for a Botanical Art Diploma, and this set of DVD's has been invaluable to me. Her teaching method is very clear concise and friendly, like she is talking to you personally, the camera work and production by her husband is superb.
The explanations are in depth and easy to understand as she goes into great detail about her methods and her demonstrations are again superb. I have about 100 art DVD's and this is by far one of the best. I recommend this to everyone. (Posted on 03/07/2017)
