Richard & Susan Harrison-Tustain
Internationally acclaimed New Zealand watercolor and oil artist, Susan Harrison-Tustain, appeared in Colour In Your Life, season 10. Her passion for painting, for natural beauty and light, allows her viewers to feel part of the world she has captured.
Susan’s choice of subjects and the naturalistic realism of her painting style enable her to capture more than a subject – she wants the viewers of her work to feel the emotion within the painting. Combined with her husband, Richard, as her constant support and videographer, Susan and Richard have a plethora of knowledge to share about creating art and capturing it to share with the world.
Appearing in Colour In Your Life season twenty, and being one of the show's international hosts, Alan James is a highly respected, award-winning watercolor artist and teacher.
Teaching watercolors at his studio in Deep River, Connecticut, at Jerry’s Artarama, and at the historic Lyme Art Association, the birthplace of American Impressionism, his style is comprehensive, and many of his students have gone on to become successful artists in their own right.
The art of Alan James captures the very soul of his subjects with passion, boldness, and elegance. His paintings are imbued with a mood, a mystery that engages and lures the viewer into the magic. His style is impressionistic and traditionalist with emphasis on purity of design and clear, transparent colors.
