Internationally acclaimed New Zealand watercolor and oil artist Susan Harrison-Tustain’s highly sought-after work will take you on an artistic journey.
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. She paints with a sensitivity that creates a compelling connection between the subject, the artist, and the viewer. Her passion is fuelled by the excitement of discovering a new subject, then deciding how best to convey her message as a narrative in paint.
You’ll find Susan’s work represented in collections in the U.S.A., Britain, France, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and New Zealand. She tutors workshops in New Zealand and the USA which are in great demand and are attended by artists from all over the world. Passionate about a variety of subjects, Susan particularly loves to paint child studies, figurative studies, nude, still life, bird, and floral studies. Painting intuitively, she has a natural affinity for watercolor and an innate ability to captivate the viewers of her work.
Susan loves to share all she knows about painting in watercolour with artists around the world in her newly released Ebook with over 180 pages of invaluable hints and tips for the watercolor artist: ‘Susan Harrison-Tustain’s Watercolor Secrets Revealed – Volume One’. Susan also shares all she knows about watercolour in her How to Watercolor Video Downloads, DVDs, and international workshops.
Inspired by the stunning works of artist Gustav Klimt, using gold leaf, Susan has used her own ideas and creativity to also pursue oil painting on 24k gold, silver and palladium leaf, which can be seen here: https://www.susanart.com/paintings/24-carat-gold-palladium-leaf-series/.
She is incorporating elements of impressionism and surrealism into her paintings and is exhilarated by both the challenges and triumphs painting on gold and palladium leaf can bring.
